What happened in the Dallas Mavericks organization is unacceptable and horrific, but to think Mark Cuban knew or covered anything up is irresponsible. Basketball teams have a lot of moving parts. Mark Cuban could be aware of finances and budget reports, but knowing everything about workplace culture is a big ask especially when he has so many other businesses to tend to. Since he delegated responsibility within the organization, it's entirely possible he wasn't aware of the hostile work environment. Cuban has taken responsibility and action after this report was made known to him. He didn't know what was going on, but at least he's doing something about it now.

Mark Cuban built his reputation by being one of the most involved owners in the league. His hands-on approach makes it impossible to think he had no idea that this was happening in his organization. The Sports Illustrated report stated that a women's running club warned a new employee about Ussery and his harassment. If another organization knew of his reputation than Cuban couldn't have been completely ignorant. This happened under Cuban's watch, and he was aware of it.
