NBA studio analyst and former Sonics star Gary Payton has been suspended by Fox Sports 1 after being accused of assaulting a woman, the network confirmed in a report Wednesday. According to the report on awfulannouncing.com, Payton is suspended while the network conducts an internal investigation into the claims, which were made in a lawsuit and stem from an alleged incident after an event in Seattle in January.
Gary Payton is being sued by a woman who claims the NBA legend beat her up over and over again during a quick getaway to Seattle … though Payton denies the whole thing and says it’s nothing more than a shameless cash grab. TMZ Sports has obtained the lawsuit filed by Trishtan Williams — who claims Payton invited her as his date to an awards function in Seattle back in January … but after the ceremony, things got violent.
Hall of Famer Gary Payton was a guest on Sirius XM NBA Radio and spoke about the state of the point guard in the league. In a nutshell, “The Glove” says there’s only three top point guards and San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker is on his list along with Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul. Payton points to Parker’s ability to create for his teammates and shoot second. He says Parker’s style of play reminds him of the guards he faced during his time in the league.
