As you have probably already heard about, Robert Traylor owes a lot of money to the IRS. And he has a repayment plan to adhere to to give it back. But this has proven difficult. Traylor was the Turkish league All-Star Game MVP in 2008/09, averaging 14.3ppg, 8.4rpg, 2.1apg and 1.6bpg per game for Kepez BLD Antalya. Yet this summer's move to the better standard (and better paid) Serie A did not work out. This is because Traylor joined Napoli, and, as regular readers will know by now, Napoli had the worst season in the history of sports. The bankrupt team weren't exactly the ideal match for the indebted Traylor, who left after seven games without being paid. He then tried to get a playing gig in China, but this was vetoed by the league due to his tax problems. Those problems culminated in February; behind on his pre-determined repayment schedule due to his inability to find elite paying gigs, Traylor was sentenced to a 60 day jail term last season, which had earlier been suspended so that he could go and play for Napoli. That sentence is suspended until June 1st; in the mean time, Traylor is playing in Puerto Rico. He was named to the All-Star team last month, and is allowed to keep playing for Bayamon until their season ends, whenever that may be. But once it does end, Traylor must report to jail.
(If he needs money, maybe he could sell that watch.)
