Former NBA player Rasual Butler, 38, dies in car crash
Former NBA player Rasual Butler was one of two people killed in a single-vehicle crash in Studio City, California, early Wednesday morning, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office confirmed to ESPN. He was 38.
Butler was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:35 a.m. after his Range Rover struck parking meters and a wall and rolled into a parking lot, the coroner’s office said. An autopsy report is pending.
A person in the vehicle with Butler was also killed, but the coroner’s office would not confirm the individual’s identity because next of kin had not been notified.
Butler, a forward who averaged 7.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per game, played 13 seasons in the NBA for eight teams. He last played during the 2015-16 season with the San Antonio Spurs.
