·1 min read

The current version of the Philadelphia 76ers is dealing with a lot of drama as they continue with their preparation for the 2021-22 season. Of course, their drama is more focused on basketball as they move on from the Ben Simmons situation.

A former member of the Sixers is now dealing with his own drama that unfortunately does not have to do with basketball.

Tony Wroten, who played three seasons in Philadelphia during The Process era, is listed among 18 former players who have been arrested and charged federally for defrauding the NBA’s Health and Wellness Benefit Plan out of approximately $4 million.

Per Tom Winter of NBC News, Wroten was listed as one of the 18 players involved in the fraud act.

Wroten was a bit of a fan favorite while a member of the Sixers due to his energetic play and his ability to consistently score the ball. He did average 13.8 points while with the Sixers.
