Heat executive Jeffrey R. David is suspected of embezzling $13.4 million while working for the Kings.

Make that former Heat executive Jeffrey R. David.

Ira Winderman of the South Florida SunSentinel:

A team spokesperson confirmed Friday that Jeffrey R. David, who initially had been placed on leave by the Miami Heat amid an FBI investigation into a suspected money-laundering scheme while in a similar role with the Sacramento Kings, is no longer a Heat employee.

It seems the Heat were careful not to say David was “fired.” Maybe he was. Or maybe he resigned.

But his exit in Miami sure adds to the impression something was amiss.
