Sources: NBA Players Begin To Cut Ties With ASM's Andy Miller In Wake Of Hoops Scandal
Multiple NBA players have "severed ties" with ASM Founder Andy Miller, one of the league's "most prominent agents," in the wake of this week's college hoops scandal, according to sources cited by Goodman & Haynes of ESPN.com. Clippers C Willie Reed has filed a $13.5M arbitration claim, "alleging he was defrauded." Reed did so "in part because of Christian Dawkins, one of the 10 people arrested on federal corruption charges on Tuesday." Dawkins was "reportedly terminated by Miller" in early May following a NBPA probe into the "unauthorized use of a player's personal credit card." However, Dawkins "remained the primary ASM representative for Reed and other players," including Pacers G Edmond Sumner, T'Wolves C Justin Patton and Sumner "both fired Miller since the FBI investigation became public." Miller represents "more than 40 current NBA players" -- including Knicks F Kristaps Porzingis, Raptors G Kyle Lowry, F Serge Ibaka and Pacers F Myles Turner (ESPN.com, 9/28).
