Tulane NBA Prospect Teshaun Hightower has been arrested and charged with murder, and aggravated assault in Georgia. Police arrested Teshaun Hightower after connecting him to a homicide that took place in Stockbridge, GA earlier in April, where Devante Anthony Long was killed. Teshaun Hightower was one of 6 people charged in connection with crime.
Teshaun Hightower had a strong season at Tulane averaging around 16 ppg, and had just declared for the NBA draft this month. With Teshaun Hightower being charged with murder of Devante Anthony Long, his NBA dreams are likely over. We can only hope the investigation shows he had nothing to do with this crime.
RIP to the victim.
