According to Travis Hines of the Ames Tribune, New Orleans Pelicans wing Bryce Dejean-Jones has died at the age of 23.

Former Iowa State men’s basketball player and current New Orleans Pelican Bryce Dejean-Jones has died, the Dallas (Texas) County coroner’s office confirmed to the Ames Tribune on Saturday.

The coroner’s office is currently unable to provide a cause of death.

DeJean-Jones, who played on multiple 10-day contracts for the injury-plagued Pelicans this season, signed a non-guaranteed three-year deal with the team in February. He appeared in 14 games for New Orleans in 2015-16, quickly becoming a fan favorite for his relentless two-way hustle and aggressive brand of individual defense.
