But just over a month later, he signed with another agency, prompting Prime Sports Marketing to pursue legal action for the enforcement of their contract with Williamson.

Reports surfaced, noting that Gina Ford and her legal team asked for requests for admission, with Ford alleging that Williamson took various gifts so that he could head to Duke University. Ford claims his family received such impermissible benefits from Duke, Nike and Adidas. Stay tuned for more details in this situation. He was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft, the same day Ford filed the lawsuit against him.

Michael Avenatti, a celebrity attorney, alleged that Nike paid Williamson's mother $35,000 or more in February of 2017. If the NCAA finds the allegations credible, Duke could face penalties.

Avenatti was convicted in February of attempting to extort $25 million from Nike by threatening to reveal the apparel giant's improper bribery scheme.
