Noted NBA agent Andy Miller is beginning to lose clients after the FBI used a warrant to raid the offices of his agency, ASM Sports, and obtain Miller's computer, according to a report from Forbes.

"A mass departure of clients was expected, but not this quickly," wrote Forbes sports contributor Darren Heitner.

"On Thursday, I learned that several of Miller's clients had terminated him as their agent of record. It was believed that either three or four players had already informed Miller that they were looking for new representation.

"Among the players to have already confirmed their departure were 2017 NBA Draft 16th overall pick Justin Patton from Creighton and 59th overall pick Jaron Blossomgame from Clemson."

Earlier this week, the the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York charged 10 people with crimes centered on college basketball. Among those crimes: Bribery and fraud.

Miller's agency has strongly been linked to the investigation.

"It is not yet known what some of Miller's more high profile clients such as Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and Kristaps Porzingis will do. However, Myles Turner appears to feel comfortable with Miller continuing to represent his interests," Heitner wrote.
