The New York Knicks have sued the Toronto Raptors and several members of their organization, including a former Knicks employee, for allegedly stealing proprietary information, according to Ian Begley of SNY.
The Knicks filed the lawsuit on Monday, alleging that ex-Knicks employee Ikechukwu Azotam “illegally took thousands of proprietary files with him to his new position” with the Raptors.
According to the report, the material taken includes a prep book for the 2022-23 season, play frequency reports, and video scouting files.
Per Begley, the lawsuit alleges that Azotam “illegally procured” the information by sharing it with members of the Raptors organization, including new head coach Darko Rajakovic and player development coach Noah Lewis.
