About Tyler Honeycutt

Tyler Deon Honeycutt (July 15, 1990 – July 7, 2018) was an American professional basketball player. He played college basketball for the UCLA Bruins, where he earned first-team all-conference honors in the Pac-10 (known now as the Pac-12) as a sophomore in 2011. Honeycutt was selected by the Sacramento Kings in the second round of the 2011 NBA draft. He played with the Kings for two seasons and in 2013 moved to Europe, where he played for EuroLeague clubs Khimki and Anadolu Efes. He committed suicide at age 27 following a shootout with police.


On the afternoon of July 6, 2018, Honeycutt's mother called 911 after he had been acting erratically. She said that he had been using nitrous oxide "for six months overseas and I think it scrambled his brain." When police arrived they found that he had barricaded the entrance to his Sherman Oaks home. He fired a shot that hit a wall next to an officer, who fired back at Honeycutt. After several hours, LAPD SWAT entered the home early the next morning, and found Honeycutt dead. An autopsy determined that he committed suicide by a gunshot wound to the head.
