Andray Blatche was supremely confident that when the "truth comes out" about an alleged sexual assault in his suite early Tuesday morning, people will realize the story is not as been reported. He also said that he doesn't feel that he needs to re-evaluate who he hangs with.
From Stefan Bondy and Josh Newman:
No. Like I said, no. Y’all going to hear the truth sooner or later. It’s just a bad situation what somebody would say. But trust me, when the time comes and I can talk about it, everybody will realize it’s not what you think ... Right now, it’s still a legal matter. I can’t really have any comments about it, but I feel everything will be resolved.
Blatche also told beat writers after practice that he did nothing wrong. "I talked to my teammates, Billy (King) about it," Blatche said. "We all know what’s going on. Everybody’s supporting me and got my back 100 percent."
However, Zach Schonbrun, filling in for Howard Beck, reports the NBA is monitoring the Philadelphia PD investigation.
In Philadelphia, the investigation of the alleged sexual assault continues. Although Blatche was questioned about what went on in his suite at the Four Seasons, the woman involved has said he was not one of her assailants but that he was "aware" of the assault and did nothing to stop it. The woman, who Blatche and his entourage picked up at at strip club near the team hotel, has also criticized the Nets organization. She describes herself as a 21-year "student."
