Moses Scurry, a Nevada Las Vegas basketball player, said he accepted $20 from his summer league coach to pay for lunch, unaware the man was a convicted gambler.
Scurry denied receiving $100 from Sam Perry, as reported in the latest edition of Time magazine. The magazine reported that Scurry and David Butler received the money at a luncheon at Caesars Palace on Oct. 18, 1988.
The magazine said Perry is also known as Richie (the Fixer) Perry. He was convicted in 1974 of sports bribery charges in connection with a major New York betting scandal at Roosevelt and Yonkers Raceways, both harness tracks, and pleaded guilty in 1984 in a sports bribery case involving Boston College.
