According to reports, the death didn't raise any suspicion of foul play and the cause of death will be later determined by the Maricopa County Medical Examiner. He said in the video that it was probably his "last message on earth". I lied, I cheated and I stole from many people. You can't play around with life. On Instagram, former Phoenix Suns head coach and UCLA teammate Earl Watson posted a short video clip of him and Knight laughing in a auto. Even my mom and my brother and my family members. "I isolated myself from my friends, and that's not something you should do", the former basketball player said in his recorded YouTube video.

"I isolated myself from my family, I isolated myself from my friends, and that's not something you should do", Knight said.

"Our hearts are heavy after learning Billy Knight has passed away".

Mental illness is a bad disease and should be treated very seriously.

The formal process of reading of the criminal charging document to him is scheduled for July 27, though he is yet to enter a plea. Agents in San Jose, California , arrested Xiaolang Zhang on Saturday, moments before he was to board his flight.

"Mental illness is serious". I hear voices in my head constantly and I don't know where they come from. "We ask that the Bruin family keep Billy's loved ones in their thoughts during this hard time", tweeted the UCLA men's basketball program. Later in the video he says "I just feel like I don't belong here on Earth". "We ask that the Bruin family keep Billy's loved ones in their thoughts during this hard time".

The 39-year-old Knight was a guard/forward at UCLA from 1998-2002, averaging 14.1 points and 3.5 rebounds per game as a senior. After college, he played in the D-League in France and Japan.

Knight is the second former UCLA star to die tragically in recent days. 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.
