Tim Quarterman, who played for LSU for three seasons from 2013-16, allegedly received payment from an agent during his career in Baton Rouge, according to a major report published Friday morning by Pat Forde and Pete Thamel of Yahoo! Sports.
Forde and Thamel report that a balance sheet from sports agency ASM shows that Quarterman “at the time a junior at LSU, received at least $16,000.”
In that season for the Tigers, Quarterman played in 33 games and averaged 11.2 points, 3.6 assists, and 4.6 rebounds per game.
While meeting with an agent is legal under NCAA rules, accepting money and other benefits from them is not. If Quarterman is found to have accepted money, he would be ruled ineligible for that time period, which could force LSU to vacate games it won while fielding an ineligible player.
He signed with the Portland Trailblazers after going undrafted and played in 16 games last season. The Houston Rockets acquired Quarterman in a trade and then waived him. He is currently in the NBA G League.
