Around The Realm: 18 former NBA players arrested for defrauding NBA’s Health and Welfare Benefit Plan

Former Kings players Terrence Williams and Antoine Wright are among the players involved.

18 former NBA players were arrested this morning on charges of defrauding the NBA's Health and Welfare Benefit Plan of around $4 million. The story was first reported by Tom Winter and Jonathan Dienst of NBC News.

Former Sacramento Kings players Antoine Wright and Terrence Williams are among those involved, with Williams allegedly being the orchestrator of the scheme.

Some of the bigger names charged in the indictment include Tony Allen, Glen "Big Baby" Davis, Darius Miles, and Sebastian Telfair.

This is a surprising story, especially considering some of the players involved. Tony Allen made around $40 million dollars over the course of his career. Big Baby Davis earned approximately $32 million in his career.

It's unclear where this story goes from here or what type of punishment the players could face.

Big deal, like there are any of us that haven’t engaged in insurance fraud.
