The alleged crime occurred April 1, 2017.

Names from across the sports world reacted to news of Knight's death on social media.

TMZ reports, "Shortly after the video was posted, the Phoenix P.D. says officers found Knight's body in a roadway in downtown Phoenix".

No evidence of foul play was suspected, police said.

On July 8, Knight posted a video to Youtube titled "Billy Knight I am sorry Lord", which he began by saying, "This is probably my last message on earth". Honeycutt had a shootout with police at his home in Sherman Oaks, and The Los Angeles Daily News reports, "He reportedly barricaded himself after shots were exchanged, starting an 11-hour standoff". "I lied, I cheated and I stole", he said.

During the video, Knight becomes emotional as he repeatedly references his faith and calls on people with mental health difficulties to reach out to loved ones.

A Los Angeles native, Knight played for the Bruins from 1997 to 2002, averaging eight points and two rebounds per game.

"I was a taker", Knight says.

Knight, who was facing six felonies, apparently made a decision to end his life instead. Life is not a game. On Saturday, a family member confirmed to KABC that Honeycutt had died. I isolated myself from my family members. If this happens, you probably have a mental illness. "I just feel like I can't continue on". Knight started all 33 games in the 2001-02 campaign, but he never broke into the National Basketball Association, bouncing around the D-League and France and Japan after his college career. At the time of his death, he had been on the staff of the Northern Arizona Suns, a developmental G league team affiliated with the NBA's Phoenix Suns.

Phoenix Suns forward Jared Dudley responded on Twitter after learning of Knight's death.
