Derek Anderson involved in Cocaine Ring
Derek Anderson Implicated In Cocaine Ring
Aug 23, 2011 1:58 PM EDT
Derek Anderson, former NBA player with the Cavaliers and Blazers who went to Kentucky, has been implicated in a cocaine ring.
Francois Cunningham made a deal for early release in exchange for his testimony. In interviews with police, Cunningham tells them he was involved in drug buys, two to three kilos of cocaine at a time at $20,000 per kilo.
Louisville Metro Police Detective Denny Butler interviewed Cunningham about Anderson.
Butler: "Was Derek Anderson ever present when you all bought narcotics?"
Cunningham: "Nah, he stays away from you know, he's just the money and he's not going to get around any of it but, that's who funnels the money."
Anderson has never been charged with a crime in this investigation. His name has only come up in statements Cunningham gave police.

Maybe he thought it counted as credits towards his "degree in pharmacy"?

"Anderson says he graduated; UK disagrees
By PAT FORDE
Amid all that Derek Anderson has achieved, there is one blemish on his personal record:
He misrepresented his college academic achievements.
His Web site, www.Derekanderson1.com, says he "graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in pharmacy." His NBA biography says the same thing. Anderson himself has said so several times.
UK says otherwise. The school's registrar, public relations office and athletic department all say Anderson did not graduate. A school official says he left in 1997 without receiving his degree, and that Anderson was enrolled in the College of Social Work, not pharmacy.
When asked about the discrepancy, Anderson acknowledged that he does not have a diploma but says that's because he did not take what he termed "a placement test."
"I did take all my classes and I finished," Anderson said.
But Selena Stevens of the UK public relations office said that Anderson dropped two classes late in his final year at UK, one in April and one in May of 1997.
Anderson spent his first two years of college at Ohio State, then transferred to UK. He said social work was a minor he enrolled in during the 1994-95 school year. He attended classes for three years at UK."

This story big hush hush in P-Town, mainly due to the fact that he is a Blazer's employee, because Paul Allen is still paying off a terrible contract.
Blazers are first team to use rule for luxury tax relief - NBA - ESPN
Portland must pay Anderson what remains on his contract -- nearly $19 million over two seasons -- but will not pay any luxury tax on the contract, which remains on the Blazers' payroll.
