Mark Eaton, a former two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year for the Utah Jazz, died Friday night after apparently crashing his bike, the team announced Saturday.
He was 64.
Eaton was found lying unconscious next to his bicycle on a road in Summit County, Utah, local police said, according to multiple reports.
Officials said they don’t have reason to believe a vehicle was involved in the accident, according to the team.
Eaton was pronounced dead after being taken to a hospital. A cause of death has not yet been determined.
Standing at 7-foot-4, Eaton spent his entire 11-year career with the Jazz and had his No. 53 retired by the franchise after his final season in 1992-93.
