SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS: The San Antonio Spurs star player Josh Primo has been allegedly dismissed on October 30, 2022, after he was accused of "multiple allegations of indecent exposure." A psychologist who has worked with San Antonio Spurs has also come forward as an accuser of the NBA player while Primo believes the incident in question with her was an accident.

Psychologist Hillary Cauthen has made an accusation against the 19-year-old NBA player and will speak out on Thursday about him in a press conference, according to TMZ Sports. Primo, who was waived by the San Antonio Spurs after ESPN reported "multiple alleged incidents of him exposing himself to women", claimed he was "shocked" by the allegations against him.

Primo said he was "shocked" by the allegations against him, adding that he didn't intentionally expose himself and that it must have been a wardrobe malfunction while on her couch in a therapy session, according to Daily Mail. Cauthen will be represented by Houston-based attorney Tony Buzbee, who earlier this year represented 24 women who filed civil suits against NFL quarterback Deshaun Watson, accusing him of sexual assault or harassment.

He cited his mental health and said, "I've been seeking help to deal with previous trauma I suffered and will now take this time to focus on mental health treatment more fully." "I hope to be able to discuss these issues in the future so I can help others who have suffered in a similar way. I appreciate this privacy at this time," he concluded.
