NBA Rumor: Luis Montero Arrest

3 rumors in this storyline

There was a time when Luis David Montero-Carrasco had a promising career in the NBA. He played for the Miami Heat, the Detroit Pistons and the Portland Trail Blazers. It is likely that he won’t be playing professionally anytime soon. A meeting at the Best Western Hotel at 131 Fairway Dr., in Miami Springs, with a 13-year-old girl is now part of the 25-year-old basketball player’s criminal record. The girl told an officer the two had exchanged nude pictures for about a week before she agreed to meet him for sex.

By the time a police officer arrived, the girl was leaving the hotel. She told the officer the meeting was consensual after the two had exchanged sexual photos. She also said she had told Montero-Carrasco that she 15 years old, according to the arrest report. Montero-Carrasco told the officer the girl never disclosed her age, but he knew she was underage because of how “young she looked and how immature her text messages sounded,” the officer wrote in the arrest report.

Goran Dragic talked to the Slovenian press before Saturday’s prep game against Montenegro and explained his motivation about his return to the Slovenian national team. “I predict the semi-finals, but then anything is possible”, said a smiling Dragic, who is ready to defend the title he won together with a young Luka Doncic back in 2017. However, after five years things are different and Dragic understands it: “In my opinion, I will play a little less minutes, it will not be at that level. I don’t know how much I played, 36 minutes per game? Everything will depend on how I feel. The role will definitely be different. I was Batman, but now I’ll be Robin. The most important thing will be to make sure we have good chemistry and be a leader on the court and lift guys up when it’s most difficult. My role remains the same, Luka’s may have changed a bit more, but I believe that everyone has their own role in the national team and that there will be no problems. We all understand each other, we are one big team, and that’s why we can make a good result. That chemistry is what other teams don’t have.”
Dragic had also to convince the Chicago Bulls to let him play, something that was not ideal for them: “When I had a medical exam with Chicago and sat down with them, they said I’d rather not play. I said I’d rather and in the end it’s the player who decides. I had to go to Chicago, undergo a medical examination and everything else. When you go to a medical examination, you always wait for the results, because you never know what can happen”.
