Reuters – Former UCLA and Sacramento Kings forward Tyler Honeycutt reportedly died following a standoff and shootout with Los Angeles police Friday (July 6) night. He was 27 years old.

It was unclear whether police shot Honeycutt or he shot himself, but the LAPD tweeted Saturday (July 7) that “it appears as if the suspect was not struck by any officer’s gunfire. The suspect appears to have sustained injuries consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

The LAPD has not yet officially identified the man.

After playing two seasons at UCLA, from 2009-11, Honeycutt was drafted by the Kings in the second round of the 2011 NBA Draft. He played in 24 games over two seasons in the NBA, averaging 1.2 points and 1.0 rebounds per game. His last NBA season was 2012-13.

He played overseas beginning in 2013, playing as recently as last season for BC Khimki in Moscow.
