Uh-oh. Hopefully Andray really has nothing to do with this. I’ve seen different reports coming out about the sexual assault investigation, some are saying he’s involved and others are saying he’s a witness. He also took to twitter to clear his name.
Check out the report and his tweet after the jump…

Police are questioning Brooklyn Nets forward Andray Blatche about a sexual assault that allegedly took place early Tuesday in a Philadelphia hotel, a source told the Daily News.
A 21-year-old woman filed a complaint alleging that she was assaulted at the Four Seasons Hotel in Center City at about 4 a.m., CBS Philly said. The Nets are scheduled to play the 76ers in Philadelphia Tuesday night.
“We are aware of the ongoing police investigation regarding a member of the Brooklyn Nets,” the team said in a statement. “We will have no further comment until the investigation has concluded. All of our players are available for tonight’s game.”
The Four Seasons said in a statement that police responded to a call made by the hotel’s staff early Tuesday morning, and that hotel officials are cooperating with the police investigation.
A Philadelphia police spokesman confirmed to the Daily News that an investigation was underway. No criminal charges have been filed.
UPDATE via ESPN:
Investigators told NBC in Philadelphia that a Nets player was in the suite but not in the bedroom where the alleged assault took place. The source told ESPN that it was indeed Blatche’s friend who is the focus of the investigation. According to the NBC report, the player, a 41-year-old man and a 25-year-old man were taken into custody for questioning.
