Former NBA player Art Long was sentenced to prison this week, after being convicted of federal drug and gun charges.

According to ESPN, a judge sentenced Arthur Long to nearly seven years on Tuesday (Dec. 15) on charges that he operated a marijuana and ecstasy hub from his New York home.

During a 2013 raid of his home in Rochester, NY, investigators found ecstasy, marijuana, an AK-47 and a stolen .45-caliber handgun, along with drug-packaging materials.

Long was a star player at East High School in Rochester. He'd eventually make it to the NBA, playing for the Sacramento Kings, Seattle SuperSonics, Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors between 2000 and 2003.
