AAU teams who might be sponsored by shoe companies do not always have the power to legally steer players to particular teams. It depends on the circumstances, the athletes involved, their parents, etc.
Shoe companies in some circumstances can deliver players legally using AAU teams such as the Nike AAU team in AZ run by Bagley's father that apprently received hundreds of thousands of dollars.
In other cases, shoe companies, sometimes using the funnel of AAU teams, can engage in illegal or illicit behavior.
I don't think any of this is going on with Green or Mannion but I don't really know.
