Don't want to say who yet, as I'm awaiting confirmation. However, this would be really tragic if true.

Edit:
Heard it now from various people.

Triboy quick hits - Mickey ceiling is a better shot blocking but 6'8 version of Bosh. Mickey is going to be a gem but not likely a future hof. Mickey can't play the 3? Mickey has ability to spin with his right/left hand.  Shoot the 3. Blow by guys, fakes, up and unders, explosive finishes at rim. Hard to contain. You dont get the value of him yet.

Let's hope it's just a rumor. It was mentioned on Twitter and radio several hours ago but ESPN, SI, and the AP don't have anything on it.

It's legit. FWC notified the family.

So the autopsy confirmed that Fernandez not only was legally drunk (.147 BAL) but also had cocaine in his system.  The other two men had alcohol in their systems but were not legally drunk though one of them also had cocaine in his system.
