A preliminary investigation has been launched by the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office in Texas into allegations made against free agent guard Joshua Primo, according to recent reports and police officials. Primo is being accused of exposing himself indecently to women multiple times. The allegations were reportedly the reason Primo was released by the San Antonio Spurs not long after the team picked up the guard’s 2023-24 option. Former Spurs team psychologist Hillary Cauthen is one of the alleged victims, claiming that Primo exposed himself to her during one of their therapy sessions.

Cauthen’s attorney is Houston-based Tony Buzbee, who also represented more than two dozen women who accused Deshaun Watson of sexual assault. Buzbee announced during a recent live press conference that he filed a lawsuit on behalf of Cauthen against Primo and the San Antonio Spurs. Buzbee alleges that the NBA franchise failed to address Dr. Cauthen’s complaints about Primo when she first brought them up. The Spur’ conduct in response to the allegations was allegedly “egregious and unreasonable”, according to Buzbee.

“The organization I worked for has failed me,” Cauthen said during the presser. “I spoke up, I asked for help, I gave options.”

A police spokesperson announced that investigators have made contact with an alleged victim, whose name was not disclosed. Details of the meeting were also not disclosed.

A statement was released by Primo’s attorney, William J. Briggs, II. Briggs has not only denied the allegations made against his client, but also claims Primo is being “victimized” by Cauthen.

“He is now being victimized by his former team appointed sports psychologist, who is playing to ugly stereotypes and racially charged fears for her own financial benefit.”

“What makes the allegations even less credible is that Dr. Cauthen never informed her patient of the purported exposure. Dr. Cauthen was Mr. Primo’s mental health support provider and confidant; a therapist who Mr. Primo trusted. She is much older than Mr. Primo, with many years of experience as a sports psychologist. It is baffling why she did not bother to tell her patient that his private parts were visible underneath his shorts.”
