Former NBA player Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis sentenced to 40 months in prison

Former NBA player Glen “Big Baby” Davis received a 40-month prison sentence for defrauding the league’s healthcare plan, along with three years of supervised release. Convicted of health care fraud, wire fraud, and conspiracy charges, Davis faced a potential 20-year imprisonment. Alongside accomplices, he orchestrated a scheme siphoning over $5 million from the insurance plan over four years, primarily through falsified dental and medical claims. Davis himself submitted $132,000 in false claims, including a $27,200 dental invoice supposedly from Beverly Hills, though he was in Las Vegas and then Paris that day, as evidenced by cellphone geolocation data.

This case saw over 20 convictions, including former NBA player Terrence Williams, the scheme’s ringleader, who received a 10-year sentence. Another player, Will Bynum, received an 18-month sentence for similar offenses. Davis, known for his tenure with the Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic, and Los Angeles Clippers, notably contributed to the Celtics’ 2008 championship.
