Glen Davis, Tony Allen Among 18 Former NBA Players Indicted for Insurance Fraud

On Thursday (October 7), 18 former NBA players were arrested and charged with

defrauding the NBA’s Health and Welfare Benefit Plan out of $4 million.

The defendants include Terrence Williams, Alan Anderson, Anthony Allen, Desiree

Allen, Shannon Brown, William Bynum, Ronald Glen “Big Baby” Davis, Christopher

Douglas-Roberts, Melvin Ely, Jamario Moon, Darius Miles, Milton Palacio, Ruben

Patterson, Eddie Robinson, Gregory Smith, Sebastian Telfair, Charles Watson Jr.,

Antoine Wright, and Anthony Wroten.

Each of the former NBA players now faces a count of conspiracy to commit health care

and wire fraud. The indictment claims they engaged in fraud by submitting false

claims to get reimbursed for medical and dental expenses that were never actually

incurred. The scheme was said to have been carried out from 2017 to 2020, with false

claims totaling about $3.9 million being submitted, and the defendants receiving $2.5

million in fraudulent proceeds.
