Ex-NBA player gets 5 years in drug case

Donald Hodge, a former star basketball player at the District’s Coolidge High School who went on to play for Temple University and the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, was sentenced to five years in prison Friday for conspiring to distribute drugs.

Hodge, 42, pleaded guilty in federal court in Alexandria to conspiring to distribute marijuana, cocaine and crack cocaine, authorities said.

In his plea agreement, Hodge admitted to allowing his D.C. home to be used to store drugs that others sold, authorities said.

Hodge was a 7-foot-tall center who the Mavericks drafted in 1991.
