The L.A. Lakers have backed out of plans to ink a 10-day contract with Jamil Wilson in the wake of a sexual battery lawsuit in which the player is accused of giving a woman herpes.
TMZ Sports broke the story … the woman claims she’s been diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and believes Wilson gave it to her during unprotected sexual encounters. She believes he knew he was a carrier but concealed it from her in order to gain consent.
The Lakers had reportedly planned on signing Wilson on Wednesday … but according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the team is hitting the brakes. Woj says the team isn’t ruling out signing Wilson somewhere down the line.
