Terrence Williams, who starred at Rainier Beach High School in Seattle, was one of 18 former NBA players arrested and charged Thursday with allegedly defrauding the NBA’s health care plan of millions of dollars.

According to authorities, the former players submitted $3.9 million in fake health insurance claims and received $2.5 million in return.

Also among the players arrested is former Garfield High School basketball star Tony Wroten. Here’s the full list of players arrested:
