Former Phoenix Suns head coach and UCLA teammate Earl Watson posted a video clip on Instagram of him and Knight laughing in a auto. He follows by admitting to a life of sin, discussing mental illness, and apologizing to his family and friends.

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.

He said he heard voices and didn't know where they came from. "I just asked God for forgiveness for all the wrong I've done". "However, the victim's mother told cops Knight violated the terms of his release by contacting her several times and even appearing at her home", TMZ also reported.

The news of Knight's death comes just days after another former UCLA player, Tyler Honeycutt, apparently fatally shot himself during a standoff with police in Los Angeles on Friday. But he said he left "some things" for him, saying it's not much, but it's what he had left. Billy played in the D-League and in France and Japan after college. The Arizona Suns official statement, issued on Tuesday, according to the New York Daily News, states that they were "deeply saddened by the passing".
