  • MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The agent for free-agent forward Dante Cunningham says his client plans to file a civil lawsuit against the woman who accused him of domestic assault.
    After a four-month investigation, authorities dismissed a charge of felony domestic assault against Cunningham on Tuesday, saying "there was no proof beyond a reasonable doubt for the charged offense." "Dante Cunningham is innocent," agent Joel Bell told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
    "He plans to bring civil charges against her not only to clear his name but to show people it's wrong to abuse an already overworked legal system. Cunningham, who played the last two seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves, was charged in April after he was accused of choking his then-girlfriend at their suburban Minneapolis home.
    Cunningham had talks with several teams earlier this summer, including the Timberwolves. But all of them told him they had to wait to see how the legal process played out before they decided on making a commitment to him with a contract. "That's been the most nerve-racking thing, knowing there were teams interested but they couldn't make any offers," Cunningham told The AP.
