Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis Sentenced To 40 Months For Role In Fraud

by Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton

Former Boston Celtics player found guilty of trying to defraud the NBA Players’ Health and Benefit Welfare Plan.

ESPN reported that the conditions of Davis’ supervised release include attending a financial management class and receiving mandatory drug treatment.
Before being given his punishment, Davis pleaded to Judge Valerie E. Caproni.

“When I lost basketball, I lost myself. I ask you, your honor, to help me get back to who I am,” Davis said.
Davis’ defense attorney, Sabrina Shroff, declined to comment but she did make a statement to the court at the sentencing.

“It pains me that there is no one here for Mr. Davis.”
Bynum was given a sentence of 18 months when he was sentenced last month.

The other former players who were arrested and charged in the scheme are Milt Palacio, Antoine Wright, Charles Watson, Darius Miles, Ruben Patterson, Eddie Robinson, Gregory Smith, Glen Davis, Jamario Moon, Terrence Williams, Alan Anderson, Tony Allen, Shannon Brown, Melvin Ely, Christopher Douglas-Roberts, Sebastian Telfair, and Tony Wroten.
Davis also played for the Orlando Magic and the Los Angeles Clippers. Bynum played with the Brooklyn Nets, Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings, and the Celtics.
