The FBI’s probe into corruption involving NCAA basketball teams has spread and now includes some of the biggest programs in the sport, according to a bombshell report.
Yahoo Sports viewed hundreds of pages of documents linking disgraced NBA agent Andy Miller and associate Christian Dawkins to current and former college hoops players. They show that players at 20 programs — including Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina and Michigan State — are alleged to be involved.
The documents from Miller’s agency, ASM, show impermissible loans and payments going to players. That includes Duke’s Wendell Carter, Michigan State’s Miles Bridges, former Kentucky player Bam Adebayo and Alabama’s Collin Sexton.
Assistant coaches from Auburn, USC, Arizona and Oklahoma State were arrested when the probe was initially announced in November. Miller has not been charged, but he gave up his agent certification and Yahoo reports that it’s believed he is cooperating with the feds in the case. The documents the site saw expose the inner workings of Miller’s agency.
Other notable players swept up in the case were Seton Hall’s Isaiah Whitehead, North Carolina State’s Dennis Smith Jr. and Washington’s Markelle Fultz, all now in the NBA. Fultz was the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA draft. Carter, Bridges and Sexton are all potential lottery picks in the upcoming draft.
