Following an inquiry into whether or not the 21-year-old guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder was involved in a relationship with a juvenile, the California police confirmed that Giddey will not be facing any charges in the state. According to the announcement made by the Newport Beach Police Department on Wednesday, officials have stated that they have been “unable to confirm any criminal behavior” associated to Giddey.
CNN attempted to get a statement from both the National Basketball Association and the Thunder, but they did not respond right away. After information began to circulate online in November regarding an alleged relationship between Giddey and a female child, the police decided to launch an inquiry into the matter. When it comes to Newport Beach, it is not obvious what kind of relationship, if any, Giddey has.
When queried in November about social media posts that seemed to indicate a relationship, Giddey responded by saying, “I get the question clearly, but there’s no additional comment right now.” in response to the query. Despite the fact that I am aware that you are interested in learning more about it, I do not have anything to say at this time.
Mark Daigneault, the head coach of the Thunder, declined to speak at the time as well, citing the situation as a “personal concern.” With an average of 11.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game, the Australian star, who is currently in his third year of playing and has continued to participate in the inquiry, is showing significant improvement. On Thursday, the Thunder will compete against the Jazz in a game that will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah.
