NEW YORK – Kelly Hardwick will be headed to the Olympics after all.
The NBA security official who filed an employee discrimination lawsuit against U.S. women's national coach Geno Auriemma, the NBA and USA Basketball will be on a security detail in London, the NBA confirmed Tuesday. The league wouldn't comment on which she which team she would be working with because it doesn't reveal specific security assignments.
Both the men's and women's national teams will be in Manchester, England, to play exhibition games on Wednesday and Thursday night. From there, the men will head to Barcelona while the women go to Istanbul before coming back to London for the Olympics.
The lawsuit filed June 11 by Hardwick alleges Auriemma tried to kiss her on a trip to Russia in 2009. Auriemma denies the claim.
