Arizona's Miller paid Suns' Ayton $10K per month, wiretaps show

Report: Ex-Arizona Assistant Claims Sean Miller Paid Deandre Ayton $10,000 Per Month

FBI recordings catch former Arizona assistant claiming Sean Miller paid Deandre Ayton

On April 19, A federal judge ruled that Miller will not testify in this ongoing college basketball bribery trial.

Moore referred to a specific wiretap recording introduced into evidence by prosecutors and asked Dawkins if it contained a discussion about Miller paying players.

Asked specifically about an alleged $2,500 bribe made on behalf of an NBA agent to then-University of SC assistant coach Lamont Evans, Dawkins told the jury that the money instead was meant to cover the expenses of the family of basketball player P.J. Dozier, a top recruit at the time.

Even if Arizona can somehow work around this, the fact that Miller has been dragged through the mud so thoroughly will make it so he can never get clean. It was then asked again in reference to the wiretap conversations played on Tuesday, which focused on Miller paying Wildcat players Deandre Ayton and Rawle Alkins. Dawkins testified Monday morning.

Arizona men's basketball head coach Sean Miller addresses allegations during a press conference in McKale Center Thursday, March 1 in Tucson, Ariz.

During a contentious cross-examination Thursday, Boone attempted to portray Dawkins as a hustler and con man who had previously been accused of charging about $42,000 in Uber costs to an NBA player's credit card, which caused the NBA Players Association to send a letter about Dawkins to its members and agents.

"No", Dawkins answered. "You can't defraud a school".

Dawkins testified Wednesday that he didn't think bribing college coaches was a smart investment, and said he was pressured to do so by Jeff D'Angelo, the pseudonym for an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent posing as an investor. "You can't defraud a school". I don't even know how that's possible. Still, across this trial Miller has been tied to actions that could be considered significant violations of NCAA rules.

Ayton played for Arizona for one season in 2017 before being selected by the Phoenix Suns with the top pick of the 2018 National Basketball Association draft. Dawkins also said on additional FBI-recorded conversations that Miller was "taking care" of Alkins and also that Miller is "getting killed" from the totality of the payments. The coach vehemently denied the report and says he never paid any players to attend Arizona. Arizona released a statement on Wednesday night that it takes "the information presented in court today very seriously".
