National Basketball Association star Porzingis ‘attacked’ in Latvian home town

Kristaps Porzingis in April

Porzingis' shirt is also ripped.

TMZ reported Porzingis was attacked by a group of Russians, who were supposedly unhappy with the fact that the Latvian changed clubs midway through the season.

Dallas Mavericks big man Kristaps Porzingis was back home in Latvia over the weekend when an apparent altercation broke out at a Liepaja nightclub, leaving Porzingis hurt.

Porzingis has yet to play a game with the Mavericks, as he missed the entire 2018-19 season with a torn ACL.

Kristaps Porzingis's turbulent offseason continues.

Here's a video of the aftermath, showing Porzingis had absorbed some significant damage.

"You deserve beating in your ugly face!" the 2.21 metre former New York Knicks and current Mavericks player can be heard saying in a video made by an eyewitness.

This is a developing story and we will update it when more information becomes available. He's seen in the video pushing away a woman and then he approaches police or some kind of security guards, wherever he was. A woman accused him of rape in late March, which was picked up by news outlets in early April. Obviously there's more to the story considering that Porzingis was traded away from NY and by most accounts wanted to stay in Manhattan. The All-Star denied the allegations through his lawyer.
