Former NBA player Sebastian Telfair arrested on gun possession charges in Brooklyn

Former NBA player Sebastian Telfair was arrested early Sunday in Brooklyn on gun possession-related charges, as originally reported by NBC New York.

New York Police arrested Telfair and 18-year-old Jami Thomas when officers found four loaded weapons — one of them a semiautomatic rifle — ammunition and a bullet-resistant vest. Police allegedly also found two bags of marijuana in their 2017 Ford F-150 pickup.

Not according to multiple reports.

“It’s not even close right now,” the source said, per Schultz’s Twitter feed. “Ball won’t be a Laker unless they really start 2 buy into him as a star.”

While ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne reported Ball will work out for the Lakers on Wednesday, Schultz tweeted, “Needless to say, both workout and interview process must be (great).”

Schultz’s reporting seems to confirm what Basketball Insiders reported last week: “Unless Lonzo absolutely blows the doors off (during the workout and interview), he may not be the Lakers’ guy.”

Should they pass on Ball, the Lakers figure to take Kansas forward Josh Jackson or Kentucky guard De’Aaron Fox, if the Celtics pick Washington’s Markelle Fultz No. 1 overall as expected.

Now Draymond Green gets his second personal and a technical foul after taking an inadvertent shot to Iman Shumpert’s head. Foul trouble could be a very big problem down the stretch.
