HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Detroit Pistons and former UConn star Richard Hamilton is accusing his former business manager of stealing about $1 million from him, according to a federal lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania.
The lawsuit was filed May 18 against Josh Nochimson, who is also
at the center of recruiting allegations at the University of
Connecticut, Hamilton's alma mater.
Hamilton accuses Nochimson of using his credit card to purchase
airline flights, game tickets and other items.
Nochimson's attorney says he hasn't seen the lawsuit and could
Hamilton and Nochimson met at UConn, where Hamilton led the
Huskies to a national title in 1999. Nochimson was a student
manager for the team.
He was accused earlier this year of improperly helping guide
basketball recruit Nate Miles to Connecticut by giving him lodging,
transportation, meals and representation.
