ESPN: Ex-Adidas execs, agent want federal charges dropped in corruption case


Quote
U.S. District Court judge in New York will hear arguments Thursday morning about whether a federal criminal case against three of the 10 men indicted for their alleged roles in the FBI's two-year investigation into college basketball corruption should continue.

Attorneys representing former Adidas executives James Gatto and Merl Code and former sports agent Christian Dawkins are expected to argue in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York that what their clients are accused of doing --

Regardless what happens with the criminal cases, sources with knowledge of the FBI investigation told ESPN this week that the clandestine probe could result in potential NCAA violations for as many as three dozen Division I programs, based on information included in wiretap conversations from the defendants and financial records, emails and cell phone records seized from NBA agent Andy Miller. His office was raided on the same day the FBI arrested 10 men, including four assistant coaches, in late September.

"It's not the mid-major programs who were trying to buy players to get to the top," a source told ESPN. "It's the teams that are already there."
