A federal jury convicted a former personal assistant of Gilbert Arenas of stealing more than $2 million from the former NBA player this week.

According to ESPN, 40-year-old John White was found guilty by a jury on Wednesday (September 2) of 11 counts of wire fraud and four counts of filing a false tax-related document.

He faces dozens of years in prison, when he's sentenced in November.

Prosecutors say White made unauthorized online bank transfers worth $2.1 million from Arenas' account, which he used to buy sports cars and pay the mortgage on his home.

Arenas, who is a three-time NBA All-Star, played 12 seasons in the NBA. Back in 2008, he signed a six-year, $111 million contract extension with the Washington Wizards, which was eventually amnestied by the Orlando Magic.

He hasn't played in the league since 2012.
