Former UCLA basketball player Billy Knight found dead at age 39

TMZ Sports reported Knight could've been sentenced for more than 50 years if he had been found guilty of all charges.

Knight, 39, played for UCLA from 1998-2002, averaging more than 14 points per game his senior season before entering into the 2002 NBA Draft where he was undrafted.

Court documents showed that William "Billy" Price Knight, a former UCLA basketball player and basketball operations assistant for the Northern Arizona Suns, was arrested in Tempe on June 13 on two counts of sexual conduct with a minor, two counts of sexual abuse and two counts of child molestation.

Former Phoenix Suns head coach and UCLA teammate Earl Watson posted a video clip on Instagram of him and Knight laughing in a auto. Knight died a day after posting a cryptic video on YouTube titled "I am sorry Lord".

In the video, Knight speaks about his "life of sin", and tells the viewers that it will be his "last message on earth". At this time it's unclear his cause of death, but it will soon be determined by the medical examiner in Arizona's Maricopa County, according to ESPN.

He said he heard voices and didn't know where they came from. "It's serious. And I wasn't honest with a lot of people- even my mom, my brother, and my family members".

When he wasn't picked in the 2002 National Basketball Association draft, Knight played professionally in France and Japan.
