National Basketball Association journeyman Butler, wife die in crash

Butler reportedly lost control of his vehicle at approximately 2.30 am local time in Studio City, hit a parking meter and flipped the auto.

Butler was just 38 years old.

One of Butler's best seasons in the National Basketball Association was in the 2008-09 season as a member of the Hornets, when he played all 82 games and averaged 11.2 points and 3.3 rebounds. In a tweet, the Los Angeles Clippers - whom Butler played for - identified LaBelle as the other victim.

Upon their arrival, authorities pronounced a man and woman dead at the scene.

"Our entire organization is deeply saddened after learning of the death of Rasual Butler and his wife, Leah LaBelle".

Butler was not expected to have a lengthy National Basketball Association career when he was taken by the Miami Heat near the end of the 2002 draft. Police officials believe excessive speed was a factor in the crash. Butler ended his career with the Washington Wizards and San Antonio Spurs in the 2014 and 2015 seasons, respectively. Our honest condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to the family and many friends of Rasual and Leah. "They will be missed".

The Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat also issued statements mourning Butler.

His wife, LaBelle, was an Epic Records R&B recording artist and placed 12th in the third season of American Idol. His best season during his 13-year career came with the Clippers, when he averaged 11.9 points per game during 2009-10 season.
