Richardson has already pleaded guilty to accepting a $20,000 bribe as part of the FBI's investigation, and will be sentenced for his charge on May 30.
Amid the seven wiretaps played in court during the college basketball bribery trial, there were multiple inferences of Miller himself personally paying Ayton.
On one call between Dawkins and Richardson, the two discussed Ayton and the possibility of Dawkins’ management company eventually signing Ayton. That’s when Miller came up.
“You know what he bought per month,” Richardson said on the call concerning what Richardson believed was Miller’s agreement with Ayton.
“What he do?” Dawkins asked.
“I told you, 10,” Richardson said.
Later, Dawkins said, “Hey, he’s putting up some real money for them [racial slur].”
Also on the calls, the two discussed that Richardson did not need to use any of the $20,000 that Dawkins’ company was going to give him to pay Wildcat player Rawle Alkins because Miller was allegedly handling him.
“You already know, Sean’s taking care of Rawle and them,” Dawkins said. “So it ain’t no expense to Rawle. So that’s easy.”
