Former Process Sixer Tony Wroten Arrested and Charged with Fraud

Well this is random.

Former Process Sixer legend Tony Wroten is among 18 ex-NBA players who were arrested for allegedly defrauding the NBA:

At NBC News, Winter writes this alongside Joanthan Dienst:

Those charged face a count of conspiracy to commit health care and wire fraud.

According to the grand jury indictment, the defendants allegedly engaged in a widespread scheme from at least 2017 up to around 2020 to defraud the NBA Players’ Health and Welfare Benefit Plan by submitting fake reimbursement claims for medical and dental services that were never actually rendered.

Those allegedly fraudulent claims totaled about $3.9 million, from which the defendants got about $2.5 million in fraudulent proceeds, the indictment alleges.

According to Spotrac, Wroten earned $4.5 million during his time with the Sixers. He played in Philadelphia from 2013 to 2016 and made 110 appearances on those absolutely pitiful tanking teams, then was waived following a partial ACL tear. He found his way to the G League in 2017, then moved to Europe, where he’s had stints in Estonia, Poland, and most recently Spain.

Regardless of what happens now, will always have this moment:
