Shackleford, 50, was found dead inside his Kinston, North Carolina home Friday morning. The North Carolina Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has yet to determine an official cause of death, but the Kinston Police Department has already reportedly ruled out foul play.

Shackleford played at N.C. State from 1985-88, and the 6’10 forward averaged 16.6 points and 9.6 rebounds per game in his final season with the Wolfpack. He was drafted by the New Jersey Nets, and he had brief stints with the Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Charlotte Hornets during his NBA career.
