By on

An ex-NBA player is once again involved in an incident of breaking the law. This happened when former NBA player Travis Outlaw was caught for having a large amount of marijuana possession.

This is the second time in just a month that a former NBA player was arrested by the authorities. Earlier, ex-NBA player Glen Rice Jr. was arrested by the police for assault against a former college player.

According to Carl Smith of The Dispatch, Travis possessed an amount of the regulated drug substance of marijuana that is greater than the one that is allowed in the country. Outlaw was then arrested for the possession by the police in which he was jailed at the Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Department.

However, Travis was also released the day he was detained after he gave a $10,000 bond to the department.

The former NBA player Travis Outlaw played 11 seasons in the league. He last played for the Sacramento Kings during the 2013-2014 NBA season. Outlaw also suited up for three NBA teams. These teams are the Portland Trail Blazers, Los Angeles Clippers and the New Jersey Nets.

Travis had his best season in Portland back in 2008. This is the year where he averaged career-highs in points, rebounds and assists. He averaged 13.3 points per game, 4.6 rebounds per game and 1.3 assists per game that season.

The former NBA player Travis Outlaw had career averages of 8.5 points per game, 3.2 rebounds per game, 0.8 assists per game, 0.5 steals per game and 0.6 blocks per game in 20.9 minutes of play per game.

Travis Outlaw is just 31-years-old but it would be hard for him to return to the league. This is because he has not played in the NBA for almost two years. It also does not help that he was recently involved in a bad incident for his basketball career.
