Keith Langlois: You didn’t have a lot to work with in free agency, yet you wound up satisfying some critical needs. Glenn Robinson, it looks like, will be in the rotation at minimum and the two veterans, Jose Calderon and Zaza, are the kind of guys who find ways to help even if they’re not playing. How critical was it for you to add those two for what they might mean for leadership and presence as much as for what they can still contribute as players? Dwane Casey: Huge. Big time. I see both of them contributing because of Jose’s 3-point shooting. He did a great job in Cleveland last year and to get those guys, Ed and his staff did a great job of what we had to work with as far as our cap is concerned. They did a great job of plucking those guys off and getting the guys who are really going to help us.
Some sleuthing around and it became clear. Spencer Dinwiddie is part of a Harvard program for athletes that has previously included Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. According to Boston.com, “Crossover Into Business,” is a semester-long program at Harvard Business School taught by professor Anita Elberse. The program is designed to help pro athletes better prepare themselves for “business activities during and after their active sports careers.” In this year’s class, there’s Dinwiddie, the Celtics guard Kyrie Irving, Pistons center Zaza Pachulia, and Nuggets forward Paul Millsap.
Usow, 62, owns Randy Usow Accounting Inc., with an office on North Port Washington Road. In 2004, he was introduced to Pachulia, a year after he and his wife had come to the United States from the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. From then until 2015, Usow prepared the couple’s taxes. From at least 2011 through 2015, he submitted bogus returns that fraudulently claimed large refunds, more than $800,000 worth in just four years.
