ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A former Rochester high school basketball star who went on to play professionally overseas and briefly in the NBA has been convicted of drug and gun charges in federal court.

The Democrat & Chronicle of Rochester reports (https://on.rocne.ws/1GpOO0V ) Arthur “Art” Long was found guilty Thursday of operating his home as a hub for dealing marijuana and ecstasy, as well as being in possession of two firearms to protect his drug trade.

Long was arrested in 2013 after a search of his car yielded 44 ecstasy tablets and 18 bags of marijuana. Police then found a .45-caliber handgun and an AK-47 rifle at his home in suburban Chili (CHY’-leye), along with a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.

Long, who also played basketball at the University of Cincinnati, will be sentenced Oct. 13.
