The Mavericks launched an investigation of their predatory work environment in February. A month ago, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said the investigation should be completed by the end of July.

It’s now Aug. 10.

Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News:

A Mavericks source on Wednesday told The News that the extra time is a result of the investigators, led by New York-based attorneys Anne Milgram and Evan Krutoy, “being as thorough as humanly possible, dotting their i’s and crossing their t’s.”

This is pretty hollow. I’m sure Silver already counted on the investigators being thorough when he said end of July.

But he also might have meant that more as an estimate than a deadline.

It’s far more important to investigate this well – to determine what went wrong and how to fix it – than finish by a certain date. If it requires an extra weeks to get this right, it will be worth it.
