Euroleague Basketball mourns Tyler Honeycutt

Upon police arrival, Honeycutt opened fire at officers and then barricaded himself inside a residence, per the report.

Tyler Honeycutt once had a bright future as a budding star at UCLA, but it never really translated into the National Basketball Association.

A former basketball player for the University of California, Los Angeles and NBA was found dead Saturday after an hourslong standoff with the Los Angeles Police Department, according to local reports.

According to LAPD.it doesn't appear as if Honeycutt was struck by any gunfire in the shootout, but "appears to have sustained injures consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot wound". Police officers returned fire.


The player allegedly barricaded himself inside a Sherman Oaks residence after firing on police. Overnight, Los Angeles Police Department SWAT officers went into the home and discovered the man's body, police said in a tweet shortly before 4 a.m. About 30 residents were evacuated from the area.

Police spoke with the suspect, a man in his 20s, face-to-face and through a cellphone before he fired at them from inside the building, officials said. In 2011, Honeycutt put his name in the NBA Draft was selected 35th overall (2nd Round) by the Sacramento Kings.

He had been playing overseas since 2013. Euroleague Basketball offers its condolences to Mr. Honeycutt's family, friends, teammates, coaches and the many fans who enjoyed his performances with both Khimki and Anadolu Efes Istanbul. He played in parts of 2 seasons with them, before heading to Europe to play pro ball.
