Deadspin tells the story of Robert Swift who refuses to leave a house that he no longer owns.
Robert Swift, taken 12th overall by Seattle in 2004.
KOMO News in Seattle reports Swift’s King County home was foreclosed on last summer, and sold to a woman in January. But the woman says she’s unable to move in, because Swift won’t move out.

Robert Swift will be starring in the 30 for 30 BROKE 2 in 2017.
