Report: Kelley Hardwick working security at Olympics

According to an Associated Press story the NBA confirmed that Kelley Hardwick will be on security detail at the Olympics.

 Hardwick alleges in a lawsuit that Auriemma, the U.S. and UConn women's basketball coach, worked to have her removed from providing security for the U.S. team at the Olympics after she said Auriemma tried to kiss her in a hallway in a hotel in Ekaterinburg, Russia in 2009. Auriemma called Hardwick's claims "beyond false" in the statement released after the lawsuit was filed.

 Hardwick filed the lawsuit because "seeks monetary and injunctive relief" from Auriemma, the NBA and USA Basketball for being removed from Olympic security detail. However, a source told me that Hardwick is on security detail for the U.S. men's basketball team at the Olympics which begs the question of what financial hardship has Hardwick incurred?
