A former psychologist for the San Antonio Spurs, named Hillary Cauthen, is expected to reveal details of her allegations against former Spurs point guard Joshua Primo. In a recent discussion with the media, Houston Attorney Tony Buzbee stated that his client will be appearing at a news conference this Thursday in the city of Houston to explain the details of her Primo allegations.

In addition to being the lead attorney on cases for more than two dozen women alleging sexual misconduct by Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, Buzbee is currently representing plaintiff Darnell Green in a felony battery case against Saints running back Alvin Kamara. Primo was entering the second-year of his rookie contract after being drafted 12th overall in the 2021 NBA Draft. The player was waived after the first four games of the 2022 season, and is now facing accusations of allegedly exposing himself to women multiple times.

Teams have expressed interest in signing Primo after the 19-year-old clears the waiver wire and officially becomes a free agent. However, officials say teams are waiting to see how the guard’s legal issue plays out before making any commitments. Primo’s $4.3 million option was picked up for the 2023-24 NBA season. Additionally, any teams that show interest in him are required to have $4.1 million in minimum cap space.

During his media availability, Primo acknowledged that he has been getting the help that he needs to treat “previous trauma.”

“I know that you all are surprised by today’s announcement,” Primo said in the statement. “I’ve been seeking help to deal with previous trauma I suffered and will now take this time to focus on my 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 privacy at this time.”

During his rookie season, Primo played in 50 games and averaged 19 minutes of playing time per game. He finished his first season averaging 5.8 points per game (ppg) and 2.3 rebounds per game (rpg).
