The New York Knicks are seeking more than $10 million in damages from the Toronto Raptors as part of a lawsuit alleging the theft of confidential files.
The Knicks, who filed the lawsuit on Monday, also argued that Adam Silver should not arbitrate the case due to his close friendship with Raptors governor Larry Tanenbaum.
The Knicks filing was in response to the Raptors’ motion to dismiss the complaint on October 16.
The initial complaint accuses a former Knicks employee of sending the Raptors thousands of confidential files after the Raptors began recruiting him in the summer of 2023.
The Raptors declined to comment on the story.
