The NBA issued a statement in response to a report detailing the alleged domestic dispute involving Cavaliers DOGS Rajon Rondo.
In a statement sent to Malika Andrews on ESPNNBA spokesman Mike Bass commented as follows: “We are aware of the report and are in the process of gathering more information.”
According to a report Monday from TMZ Sports, Rondo’s former partner Ashley Bachelor recently filed an emergency protective order in Louisville after the 36-year-old allegedly hit him with a gun and threatened to kill him during argument on May 11., 36, mother of Rondo’s two children Ryelle and Rajon Jr., who were reportedly at the time of the incident.

Local FOX partner WDRB obtained a copy of the EPO filed Friday in Jefferson County family court. The order includes Bachelor’s account of an incident that occurred while Rondo was playing video games with his son.
Bachelor said Rondo was “angry” and continued to riot after he asked their son to finish separating his laundry. After the video game console was reportedly torn from the wall, Rondo continued to damage several items throughout the house.
According to the Bachelor, he then left the house and returned 15 minutes later to confront her, and made a threat to his life while holding a gun and fighting with two of their children. Rondo reportedly told Bachelor, “You’re dead,” as he tried to reduce the situation in front of their seemingly angry children.
Rondo has not been arrested or “named a suspect in any crime” at this time, per TMZ Sports.
Rondo and the Cavaliers have not released a statement about it. Rondo ended his 16th NBA season in Cleveland after a mid-season trade with the Lakers.
