Robert Swift, a former pro basketball player drafted by the Seattle Supersonics right out of high school, has reportedly left the Sammamish mansion he lost to foreclosure, KOMO News reports.
The 7-foot-1 Swift, 27, had been staying at the home even after a couple bought it, but they told KOMO Monday that the former pro had left, and left the house a mess.
Swift left beer bottles, pizza boxes, holes in the wall, and plenty of his own memorabilia.
"It was a shocker. It was definitely a shocker," said Eric DalZell, the new owner.
Swift lost the house to foreclosure last year, and the Dalzells had been trying to communicate with him and get him to leave the home for some time. The Dalzells told KOMO Swift and friend who had also apparently been living in the house left sometime last weekend.
Swift was drafted in the first round by the Sonics in 2004 out of Bakersfield High School (Calif.) and played two seasons. But he suffered an injury before the 2006 season, rupturing the ACL in his right knee, and another in 2008. He reportedly earned $20 million in his pro career, last playing in Japan in the 2010-11 season. He then apparently returned to his home in Sammamish.
