We’re told the speeding charge that Graham was also facing in the case will be dismissed as part of the deal.
A sentencing hearing for Graham has now been slated for next month.
The 28-year-old NBA player was initially hit with the two charges back on July 7, 2022 … after authorities in Raleigh, North Carolina say he had been doing 63 MPH in a 40 MPH zone while intoxicated at around 3 AM.
Police at the time said after pulling over Graham for speeding, breath tests revealed he had a BAC of .11.
Graham — a former second-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft — had been playing for the New Orleans Pelicans at the time of the arrest … but he was traded to the Spurs roughly seven months later as part of a deal for Josh Richardson.
Graham went on to play in 20 games for San Antonio, averaging 13 points per game.
