NBA Probe Concludes with No Evidence to Support Allegations That Dennis Lindsey Made Inappropriate Comments to Elijah Millsap

Sarah Todd, Deseret News, March 15, 2021

The NBA announced Monday that there is no corroborating evidence to support allegations made by Elijah Millsap that Jazz vice president of basketball operations Dennis Lindsey made racially insensitive comments during Millsap’s exit interview in 2015.


The league launched the investigation after a series of tweets from Millsap on Feb. 24 alleged that during the end-of-year meeting when Millsap played for the Jazz, Lindsey made inappropriate comments.

“Almost 6yrs ago. On April 16, 2015, D. Lindsey made bigot remarks in my exit interview while conversing with Q. Snyder ‘if u say one more word, I’ll cut your Black ass and send you back to Louisiana,’” Millsap said in a post on Twitter.

Lindsey denied ever having said what Millsap alleged and an investigation was announced the following day.

Jazz coach Quin Snyder, as well as general manager Justin Zanik, were interviewed as a part of the investigation and were both present during the exit interview in question. {snip}
