12:06 PM PT -- This just got CRAZY -- officials say Javaris is part of a MASSIVE drug trafficking ring centered in the Atlanta area.

According to Atlanta District Attorney, Javaris and other suspects are accused of selling "multi-kilo quantities of cocaine and several hundred pounds of marijuana."

Officials say the drug ring has been operating since at least 2012.

Javaris -- along with more than a dozen others -- were arrested in a sting operation in Atlanta today.
