PHOENIX (AP) Authorities say former UCLA basketball player Billy Knight has died in Phoenix.
The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office hasn't released a cause of death.
Phoenix police say Knight's body was found on a roadway early Sunday near downtown and there was no evidence of foul play.
The 39-year-old Knight was a guard/forward at UCLA from 1998-2002, averaging 14.1 points and 3.5 rebounds per game as a senior.
He wasn't picked in the 2002 NBA draft and played professionally in France and Japan.
Knight was a basketball operations assistant for the Northern Arizona Suns of the developmental G League in the 2016-17 season. The team is affiliated with the NBA's Phoenix Suns.
Northern Arizona Suns officials issued a statement Tuesday evening saying they were ''deeply saddened by the passing.''
