Kabongo's Relationship With Agent Rich Paul Under NCAA Investigation
The NCAA is investigating the possibility that agent Rich Paul provided improper benefits to Myck Kabongo, according to sources.
Kabongo is a sophomore guard at Texas originally from Canada.
Paul represents LeBron James, as well as fellow Canadians Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph.
The NCAA is investigating whether Paul played a role in Kabongo traveling to Cleveland this spring.
Paul also called NBA front offices on behalf of Kabongo before this year's NBA draft, sources said.
"We're aware of the situation," Texas basketball media relations official Scott McConnell said. "But we have not heard any decisions from the NCAA."
An agent is allowed to have a relationship with a prospect and his family, but providing or promising financial benefits could place the player's college eligibility in peril.
After four years working in CAA's basketball division, Paul left the company in September.
