Lou Williams admitted to NBA security that he went to the Magic City strip club in Atlanta on Thursday night while he was excused from the NBA’s bubble to attend a funeral for a family member, ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne reports:
Sources told ESPN that Williams has been interviewed by NBA security about his whereabouts while he was away from campus, and told them he did go to the Magic City gentleman’s club for a short time on Thursday night

Shelburne added that the NBA is in the process of assessing how long Williams needs to be quarantined for before resuming activities with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Here was the photo that was posted and quickly deleted by the rapper Jack Harlow:

After the story started to go viral, Harlow said the photo was old; in a since-deleted tweet captured by TMZ, Harlow wrote, “That was an old pic of me and Lou. I was just reminiscing cuz I miss him.”
Well, that’s the last time we trust Jack Harlow on these matters.
It’ll be interesting to see what the NBA concludes is a proper quarantine length in this situation, because this can’t have been a scenario that they specifically planned for.
