Court filings show a plea bargain is in the works for ex-Michigan State basketball star and retired NBA player Jay Vincent, who's charged in a $2 million Internet scam.
Vincent was silent Tuesday and a not-guilty plea to fraud and tax charges was entered in Grand rapids federal court. But a judge also set a Sept. 28 hearing for him to change that plea.
Defense lawyer Charles Ford says there could be a guilty plea if it's in Vincent's interest. He declined further comment, as did the U.S. attorney's office.
Vincent and an associate are accused of defrauding people by charging them to become certified as home inspectors.
He and Magic Johnson played on the 1979 Michigan State national championship team. Vincent played about a decade in the NBA.
