It’s a challenge for NBA players — many come from backgrounds where they didn’t have money growing up, then suddenly at age 19 or so they have millions. They don’t always handle it well.

Nathan A. Peake, 41, of Silver Spring, admitted in federal court in the District that he didn’t file tax returns from 2000 through 2007 and diverted about $5.8 million in management and agent fees from his business to personal accounts.
He also admitted to misappropriating proceeds from a $3.5 million line of commercial credit that one of his athlete clients guaranteed and paid off.
