Former Seattle Supersonic Robert Swift was back in the headlines recently  after refusing to leave his foreclosed home that had been purchased. The draft bust finally vacated the premises of the Sammamish (Wash.) home, but his little standoff left quite a nasty situation. The couple that purchased the home got a news camera crew from KOMO to document the mess left by Swift at the mansion. Swift trashed the mansion and the grounds leaving holes in the walls, bullet shell casings plus bottles, pizza boxes, and animal feces. There was even a bit of Robert Swift memoribilia, including a box of recruitment letters from several prominent colleges. Swift was one of the last straight from high school to the NBA prospects in the 2004. The former 7-foot-1 high school center from Bakersfield, Ca. was selected 12th overall by Seattle. Swift, 27, played parts of three seasons for the Sonics and dealt with two knee injuries. He last played in the NBA in the 2008-2009 season with the Oklahoma City Thunder. After a two-game stint in the NBA D-League, Swift played in Japan for a season.   source
