"It's not like we were going to chase him down", Kelly said.
The Alameda County Sheriff's Office has alleged that Ujiri shoved an officer who was trying to prevent him from accessing the court in the moments after his team clinched an National Basketball Association title.
A spokesperson for the Alameda County Sheriff's Office previously said that Ujiri did not have the proper credentials to be on the court for the victory celebrations and therefore was denied access by the officer.
A video of the altercation obtained by NBC Bay Area shows Ujiri and a deputy being held back courtside by several bystanders. When Ujiri was asked for his credentials, he reportedly pushed the Sheriff's deputy and struck the officer in the face.
Wiener said the encounter began when the deputy put his hand on Ujiri's chest and pushed him.Читайте также: Six candidates remain in Tory leadership race after Matt Hancock drops out
Wiener said he didn't see Ujiri hit the deputy in the face.
This is a stated hope that Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley drops this case like a hot potato. The deputy later complained on pain in his jaw.
NBC Sports Washington previously reported the Wizards' interest in Ujiri and Thursday night, ESPN reported the team was planning an offer of almost $10 million a year.
