Josh Giddey At Risk Of Losing Major Sponsor Amid Grooming Allegations
Josh Giddey is someone who has been hit with very disturbing allegations. Overall, the Oklahoma City Thunder star is being accused of having sex with a minor. This is a very serious allegation that could come with prison time if found to be true. Ultimately, it has been a tricky situation for the Thunder, who are still allowing Giddey to play. Although fans are outraged by his presence with the team, the Thunder are fine with keeping him around. However, the NBA is, indeed, investigating the matter.
As you can imagine, Giddey could lose a lot over this whole ordeal. Firstly, he could very well lose his entire NBA career. Secondly, he is at risk of going to prison, should he be found guilty. Lastly, there are various sponsors at play who could choose to completely pull away from him. That said, it seems like the third point is already happening right now. Currently, the NBA star has a deal with Weet-Bix which is a cereal brand in Australia. As the New York Post reports, they may just pull out of the deal.
