COURT FILING: NIKE'S Carlton DeBose discusses ILLEGAL payments with Unnamed Kentucky Assistant Coach

Could be something. Could be nothing.. Here is a quote from now disgraced mega lawyer Michael Avenatti's motion filed in federal court seeking the dismissal of charges against him. UK is mentioned but no wrongdoing is implied.. Seems a bit desperate to me but I will wait for the DVD on this one.

Carlton DeBose, the head of Nike’s EYBL circuit, is mentioned throughout the filing as one of the officials who was allegedly involved in the plan to pay high school players.
In the filing on behalf of Avenatti, one of the examples attempting to show Nike officials’ role in the plan mentioned communication between DeBose and a member of UK’s basketball staff.
“DeBose acknowledged in an exchange of text messages with an assistant coach at the University of Kentucky that Nike was funneling payments to high school players through at least ten different EYBL coaches,” according to the filing, which does not mention the UK assistant coach by name and implies no wrongdoing on behalf of the coach or Kentucky’s basketball program.
