Avery Bradley reportedly reached a settlement with a woman who claims he sexually assaulted her in May while Bradley was a member of the Celtics.

According to a report, Bradley, now with the Pistons, denied the allegations but paid a settlement to the woman, who is a reality TV star, "to prevent false information from being made public."

TMZ Sports reports the settlement figure was “high.”

The incident allegedly occurred in Cleveland on May 23 when the Celtics were in town to play the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals. The woman claims Bradley assaulted her while she was passed out drunk. After the woman accused Bradley of assault, "the two sides came together to work out a deal to keep her quiet and prevent her from releasing any video, photos or audio."

Bradley’s lawyer, Brian Wolf, released a statement on the situation:

"Mr. Bradley absolutely denies having engaged in wrongdoing whatsoever. The confidentiality agreement specifically refutes and denies the validity of all allegations of any wrongful conduct by Mr. Bradley. The sole purpose of the agreement was to protect the reputation and privacy of Mr. Bradley and his family. ... My office will take all appropriate action against all persons involved in the wrongful disclosure of this agreement. We will conduct a thorough investigation into who is responsible for this wrongful disclosure."
