Avery Bradley Paid Settlement to Sexual Assault Accuser, Lawyer Confirms

Former Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley paid a civil settlement earlier this year to a woman who accused him of sexually assaulting her in Cleveland, the gossip website TMZ reported Friday.

Bradley was traded to the Pistons in July after spending the first seven seasons of his National Basketball Association career in Boston.

It's alleged that on May 23 in Cleveland, Bradley sexually assaulted a woman while she was passed out drunk, according to TMZ.

Bradley reportedly denied the accusations, but chose to pay the woman "to prevent false information from being made public".

The payment negotiations reportedly reached a maximum of $400,000, though the final figure remains unknown.

The Celtics did not immediately respond to NESN.com's request to comment.

Bradley, who was playing for the Celtics at the time, contests all accusations.

"The confidentiality agreement specifically refutes and denies the validity of all allegations of any wrongful conduct by Mr. Bradley", attorney Brian Wolf told TMZ. After the incident, the story goes, the woman allegedly contacted Bradley and accused him of the assault. He said the objective of the confidentiality agreement was to protect Bradley's reputation and privacy.

Bradley's attorney made it clear that his client denies all of the allegations and that the settlement was made to protect Bradley's public image.

Wolf added that he and his firm will investigate who is responsible for leaking the information in violation of the confidentiality agreement. TMZ Sports maintains that a "high" deal was worked out to keep her quiet and prevent her from releasing any video, photos or audio.

Bradley has missed the Pistons' last six games due to a groin injury, however, he is averaging 15.7 points per game this season.
