Personal assistant convicted of stealing $2.1 million from former NBA star Gilbert Arenas

ORLANDO, Fla. — A federal jury has convicted a former personal assistant of Gilbert Arenas of stealing more than $2 million from the former NBA basketball player.

The jury on Wednesday found 40-year-old John White guilty 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 is sentenced in November.

He was indicted last April.

Prosecutors say White made unauthorized online bank transfers worth $2.1 million from Arenas' account.

Prosecutors say White used the money to buy sports cars and pay the mortgage on his home.

Arenas, a three-time NBA All Star, played 12 seasons for the Orlando Magic, Memphis Grizzlies, Golden State Warriors and Washington Wizards.
