According to police in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Brandon Miller provided a gun in a shooting that led to the death of a woman. According to testimony from Detective Branden Culpepper, Miller was texted by former teammate Darius Miles about the firearm. Miles is one of two men charged in the murder of Jonae Harris. The text message reportedly asked Miller to bring the gun to Miles who later allegedly shot and killed Harris with a man named Michael Lynn Davis. Miller is a top college prospect and is expected to be a top-five pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.
The best player (Brandon Miller) on a projected No. 1 seed (Alabama) supplied a gun that became the murder weapon in the killing of a young mother.
Even if he’s not charged with a crime, how does that not at least result in a suspension from the basketball team? https://t.co/lAfYMY4oFg

When questioned about the breaking story, Alabama Crimson Tide Head Coach Nate Oats said the following: “We knew about that. College kids are out. Brandon hasn’t been in any type of trouble nor is he in any type of trouble in this case. Wrong spot at the wrong time.” Brandon Miller has not been charged with a crime by the police and Alabama has not made a move to suspend the star forward.
There is no word how this will impact his last few weeks with the basketball team or how NBA teams are viewing the incident at this time. Further developments and news could come out later about the incident and the aftermath. We here at Def Pen Sports will update the story if that happens in the future.
