Luke Walton has been accused of sexual assault by former Spectrum SportsNet host Kelli Tennant as made public on Monday.

In a lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Tennant alleges that Walton assaulted her at the Casa Del Mar Hotel in Santa Monica while he was an assistant coach with the Golden State Warriors.

The Sacramento Kings issued a statement on Monday night addressing the allegations involving their new head coach Luke Walton, who signed with the team about a week ago.

“We are aware of the report and are gathering additional information. We have no further comment at this time”, the statement reads.
