Motion Filed Alleging Nike Employee Approved Payments To Williamson, Langford

(New York, NY)  -- Attorneys for lawyer Michael Avenatti filed a motion in federal court Wednesday alleging a Nike employee approved under-the-table payments to Zion Williamson and Romeo Langford in February 2017.  Both players were still in high school at the time. There is no evidence the offers, 35-thousand-dollars for Williamson and 20-thousand-dollars for Langford, were paid. According to the filing, Nike's grassroots basketball league director Carlton DeBose allegedly said he was willing to pay Williamson, Langford and an unnamed third player a total of 70-thousand-dollars.  Avenatti, who is looking for his charges to be dropped, allegedly attempted to extort 25-million-dollars from the shoe maker.
