Police Say Quinton Ross is Dead, But He's Not a Former NBA Player

By Mike Cardillo

Tuesday afternoon the New York Post reported the body of former NBA player Quinton Ross was found “stuffed into a trash bag” and buried in a shallow grave. It was a horrible, macabre headline.

Shortly after the original Post story published they’ve changed their report. A man named Quinton Ross was found dead, but it wasn’t the body of the former NBA player with the same name, who suited up for the Clippers, Mavericks and Grizzlies.

"Initial reports that the victim is former Nets basketball player Quinton Ross are incorrect, police said."

Police are investigating the slaying.
