Update 2: Neil Bhasin, managing partner of Dream Team, has issued a statement:

"We had signed Anti/ Dabuz prior to their CEO win and top placements, salaries have changed vastly since then, it made sense for them to take a more lucrative offer. We had picked up these players after the speculation of the Twitch / Nintendo circuit being announced very soon, without that it makes little sense for us to keep a smash roster. We came to a mutually beneficial agreement, and this is why Anti / Dabuz and dT are parting on good terms!"

Update: Since the time of publication, Dabuz announced that he has left Dream Team.

Original story continues below.

Just two months after picking them up, Dream Team has allegedly failed to pay its two Super Smash Bros. for Wii U players Jason "ANTi" Bates and Samuel "Dabuz" Buzby on time, with payments being currently 21 days late, sources close to the players and organization tell ESPN. As a result, ANTi has come to an agreement to terminate his contract with Dream Team, which he announced today on Twitter.

The team was also behind on paying its Super Smash Bros. Melee player Hugo "HugS" Gonzalez, but did pay him earlier today a partial amount. HugS intends to stay with Dream Team, while Dabuz's fate is currently undecided.

According to sources, ANTi and Dabuz's contract state that if they're not paid for three weeks after the contracted pay date, the first of each month, then they are able to lawfully terminate their contracts.

All three players joined Dream Team in June, with HugS joining on June 2 and ANTi and Dabuz joining on June 22. Prior to expanding to Super Smash Bros., Dream Team had previously competed in League of Legends and Call of Duty. The news of missing payments for ANTi, Dabuz and HugS come after allegations of additional missed or late payments in the team's former League of Legends and Call of Duty holdings.

Dream Team declined to a request for comment.
