'90s journeyman James faces drug charges
FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Henry Charles James, who played with a half dozen NBA teams during the 1990s, was charged with dealing cocaine while his six young children were there.
The 41-year-old James, on probation for marijuana possession, was being held at the Allen County Jail in lieu of $212,500 bail.
He is accused of selling at least 5 grams of crack cocaine for $400 on two separate occasions. Police said he brought his six children, ranging in age from 3 months to 6 years, to his last deal. He was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana and two counts of dealing cocaine.
James was arrested Thursday and had another 6 grams of cocaine and 42 grams of marijuana in his possession after he was taken into custody, police said.
James, 6-foot-8, played for Cleveland, Sacramento, Utah, the Los Angeles Clippers, Houston and Atlanta. In 1997, while with the Hawks, he hit seven 3-pointers in a quarter, tying a record at the time.
