The Dallas Mavericks can't stop generating negative headlines.
On Wednesday, the organization suspended their general manager of Mavs gaming, Roger Caneda. The reason for the suspension is that the franchise uncovered a racist tweet from 2016, an unnamed source told the Dallas Morning News.
That same source also said that while Caneda did not work for the team in 2016, there was still enough evidence to warrant an investigation.
The Mavericks' gaming department is an NBA-approved video-game project aimed at bringing in new fans to the NBA.

Two weeks ago, Sports Illustrated published a large expose detailing a culture of sexual misconduct within the franchise's business office. On Tuesday, a report was released that named Mark Cuban in a complaint in Portland that dealt with an investigation regarding an alleged sexual assault charge.
Following that investigation, the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office determined there was insufficient evidence to press criminal charges against Cuban, calling the allegation "unfounded."
