Police were searching Tuesday for up to four armed robbers who took cash and jewelry form an Encino home formerly owned by an ex-NBA player.

Two to four masked robbers hit a home in the 4700 block of White Oak Avenue (map) around 10:30 p.m. Monday, Los Angeles Police Department officials said.

The owners of the home, a husband and wife, were handcuffed as their house was ransacked. It was unclear what the robbers were armed with.

LAPD officials were still taking inventory of the home Tuesday morning, but so far said the robbers made off with an unknown amount of cash and jewelry.

The home was previously owned by Austin Spurs Assistant Coach Earl Watson, who formerly played with the UCLA Bruins before signing with multiple NBA teams.

The husband and wife were not believed to be injured during the robbery, and a description of the robbers was not made available.
