Well, this is the first time since the raid of Andy Miller’s ASM agency that there are now names that have been released of college basketball players that have possibly been involved in “Loans to Players” per Pete Thamel and Pat Forde from Yahoo Sports.For the first time since the FBI raided Andy Miller’s ASM agency, names of college basketball players have been revealed. The latest reports list three former and current Kentucky players, Bam Adebayo, Nerlens Noel, and Kevin Knox.
Bam Adebayo is said to be listed on the ASM balance sheet with a title saying, “Loans to Players.” It was entered quite simply as “BAM” . However, there was a balance sheet that had attributed twelve thousand dollars to Bam; but there is another one that stated he received thirty six thousand and five hundred dollars and also included a “bad loan” annotation beside it.
There was another balance sheet that was released from back in 2015 that had names of over 50 former college basketball players and one of the names mentioned was Nerlens Noel and that he received a loan of $4,350.
Kevin Knox was the only current Kentucky player in any of the documents, however he is not on a “Loans to Players” spreadsheet that we have seen. Kevin Knox’s name showed up in Christian Dawkins’ reported expenses.
The agent had sought reimbursement for meals that were purchased for a dozen players. Other current college basketball players such as Duke’s Wendell Carter and Alabama’s Collin Sexton are other notable names in Dawkins’ expense reports.
It’s hard right now to speculate too much about what did or did not happen but we’re watching this story closely as it develops and we will be sure to let you know as soon as we know something!
