Abstract: Let $G$ be a countable discrete group which acts isometrically and metrically properly on an infinite-dimensional Euclidean space. We calculate the $K$-theory groups of the $C^{*}$-algebras $C^{*}_{\max }(G)$ and $C^{*}_{ \smash{\text{red}}}(G)$. Our result is in accordance with the Baum-Connes conjecture.
