A famous basketball trainer and former UCLA star Billy Knight was found dead in Phoenix on Sunday after leaving behind what is believed to be a suicide note, media sources have revealed. He said in the video that it was probably his "last message on earth". I was a taker. "I just ask God for forgiveness for all the wrong I've done". I isolated myself from my friends. Tyler Honeycutt, 27, a standout player for the program before he was drafted by the Sacramento Kings in in 2011, was found dead Saturday morning after a reported shootout with police at his home in Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Daily News. He also advises people suffering from mental illness to seek help, so they don't end up like him.

Knight, who played for the Bruins from 1997 season through the 2001 season, said he was advised to get help in the video.

"Mental illness is serious".

"I hear voices in my head constantly".

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.

"The secret of living is giving. Either I'll be in heaven or will be in hell or I'll be in limbo, I don't know, but I'll take that chance". Knight went undrafted by the NBA in 2002 and played basketball in Europe and Japan.

Knight was a basketball operations assistant in the 2016-17 season for the Northern Arizona Suns of the developmental G League, a team affiliated with the NBA's Phoenix Suns.

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

UCLA basketball has suffered yet another tragedy.
