The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that former LSU basketball player Antonio Blakeney was arrested last week for allegedly arranging a robbery.

The Orlando native played at LSU from 2015–2017 and was with the Chicago Bull G-League team from 2017-2019.

A professional basketball player with the NBA G League was arrested in Kissimmee early Wednesday for allegedly arranging a robbery, court records show.

Antonio Blakeney, 24, faces two charges each of home invasion robbery with a firearm and aggravated assault alongside a grand theft charge after he was arrested at a Kissimmee home early Wednesday. In his arrest affidavit, a deputy said he invited two men over to his house to play cards and then invited another group over to rob them, records show.

He played for the bulls a couple times and overseas. He had money I’m sure but I’m guessing it wasn’t baller enough
