A former UCLA basketball player who once worked in the Phoenix Suns' organization was found dead early Sunday in downtown Phoenix after posting an apparent farewell video online. Knight starts off the roughly 6-minute clip by saying, "This is probably my last message on Earth". The Phoenix Police Department told the Daily News that no evidence of foul play was detected.

'I wasn't honest with a lot of people. even my mom, my brother and my family members. "I just feel like I don't belong here on Earth", Knight said in the video, his voice breaking.

Mental illness is a awful disease and should be treated very seriously.

Honeycutt died after a police standoff in Sherman Oaks, Calif. Knight averaged 14.1 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in his senior season for the Bruins before a brief worldwide basketball stint in Japan.

He urged people struggling to get help. "I will be in Heaven or Hell".

UCLA Basketball tweeted a tribute to Knight on Tuesday. Billy played in the D-League and in France and Japan after college. "We ask that the Bruin family keep Billy's loved ones in their thoughts during this hard time".

On Instagram, former Phoenix Suns head coach and UCLA teammate Earl Watson posted a short video clip of him and Knight laughing in a auto.
