dumas-sixersEx-NBA player, former Phoenix Suns forward Richard Dumas has been sentenced to three years of probation in a case stemming from thefts from a store on a military base, AP reported.

Dumas was sentenced by Judge Sam Myers of Maricopa County Superior Court under a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Former Phoenix Suns star pleaded guilty Dec. 11 to two felony counts of theft stemming from offenses on two dates in September 2012.

Authorities say Dumas stole about $800 worth of merchandise from a Luke Air Force Base store while working with a janitorial service. They say Dumas was seen on surveillance cameras taking cigarettes, alcohol, food, DVDs and shoes.

Dumas played for the Suns from 1992 to 1995 and helped Phoenix reach the NBA Finals in 1993. He was waived by the Suns in 1995 after he missed drug testing.

Dumas averaged career high 15.8 ppg and 4.6 rpg in his rookie season with Phoenix, in 27.5 mpg. He came back to the NBA 2 seasons later, and played 15 more games for Phoenix, before going to Philadelphia, where he finished his NBA career.

Dumas played in 102 NBA games, starting in 47 of them, averaging 10.6 ppg, 3.4 rpg in 21.8 mpg.
