Anthony Carter’s Agent Cost Him $3 Million. The Agent Paid Him Back. – The New York Times:

“Carter’s agent, Bill Duffy, failed to notify the Heat by the June 30 deadline that Carter was coming back. Instead of locking in another season in Miami, Carter accidentally became a free agent.”

It was an unusual and virtually unprecedented move.
