The dismissal was the result of an investigation by the NBA Players Association, which found Dawkins racked up about $42,000 in charges on an Uber account linked to the credit card.
The agent reportedly used the Uber account—which belonged to a player who was reportedly not an ASM client—1,865 times between July 2015 and May 2016, although no other employees at ASM were found to be responsible for the illegal activity.
The unidentified player has been reimbursed for the lost money.
This actually makes sense. I'm pretty sure I paid $42,000 in Uber charges coming home from a Chili Peppers concert once in Seattle, the only problem is I didn't get to expense it to an NBA player's credit card.
In all honesty, this is just another story of misplacing your trust in someone who clearly doesn't deserve it. $42k!?! That's only two years worth of rides. This could have gone on much longer if no one noticed.
Insanity. What a headline.
