Former NBA player Ortiz to plead guilty

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The attorney for former NBA player Jose Ortiz says his client will plead guilty to drug charges in Puerto Rico following an agreement with federal prosecutors.

Ortiz was arrested in June after federal agents seized 218 marijuana plants at his house along with 40 rounds of ammunition. He was accused of possession with intent to distribute the plants.

Ortiz later agreed to enter a drug rehabilitation program.
