Eight previous Celtics are among the 18 NBA players charged for allegedly being involved in a health insurance fraud scheme as per the New York Federal Court.
More insights regarding the swindling case arose on Thursday early evening during a question and answered session with the U.S. Lawyers and the FBI in New York. Ex-Celtics Glen Davis and Tony Allen were named in one specific plan that purportedly cheated the NBA Players’ Health and Welfare Benefit Plan.
In one model during the question and answer session, Davis and Allen, alongside previous NBA player Tony Wroten alleged cases for a root canal on similar six teeth on April 30, 2016, and again for crowns on similar six teeth under about fourteen days after the fact. Allen and Wroten likewise recorded cases for root waterways on similar 13 teeth again in September 2018.
“The defendants’ playbook included misrepresentation and duplicity,” Audrey Strauss, a U.S. lawyer based out of New York, said Thursday in a news meeting. “Thanks to the hard work of our law enforcement partners, their alleged scheme has been disrupted, and they will have to answer for their flagrant violations of law.”
Another ex-Celtic, Terrence Williams is blamed for being the driving force behind the plan with supposed cases of $3.9 million as indicated by NBC. Respondents got $2.5 million of that complete as per examiners from 2017 to 2020.
Darius Miles, Milt Palacio, Will Bynum, Sebastian Telfair, and Christopher Douglas-Roberts are the other Celtics among the 18 last NBA players charged in the plan. In August, Palacio was employed as an associate mentor under Chauncey Billups with the Portland Trail Blazers; however, the group was set to leave.
The other named litigants on the prosecution are Desiree Allen, Antoine Wright, Alan Anderson, Shannon Brown, Eddie Robinson, Jamario Moon, Melvin Ely, Ruben Patterson, Gregory Smith, C.J. Watson, and Tony Wroten.
