FBI agent Warren Flagg says he is contacted by Cuban after the 2006 NBA Final, and that he advises suing the NBA to recover $1.6 million in fines, but is not paid for his advice.
Cuban asked me what he should do. I told him, ‘Sue and you’ll win your case,’ but he knew he’d be killing the Golden Goose
Cuban denies hiring Flagg, and says their conversation may have happened as late as 2008:
I don’t recall calling the guy. But when the whole (Tim) Donaghy thing was going on I talked to a lot of people so I don’t think it’s inconceivable that I could have talked to him…He may have made a throwaway line about the 2006 Finals
