The Dallas Mavericks have reportedly fired a team photographer amid allegations of sexual harassment from several women.

The Dallas Morning News, citing sources it did not identify, reported Danny Bollinger was fired last week after the newspaper detailed the allegations. The team didn't respond to a request for comment Monday.

According to the paper, the team opened an investigation into the allegations a few days after the release of a report detailing years of sexual harassment and other workplace misconduct on the business side of the organization.

The NBA accepted the findings in the report from a law firm hired the Mavericks. The club avoided basketball-related penalties as owner Mark Cuban agreed to donate $10 million US to groups that promote the role of women in sports and raise awareness about domestic violence.

According to the Morning News, Bollinger travelled to China, where Dallas played two exhibition games against Philadelphia, but was sent home early and subsequently fired.
