Former NBA player Rasual Butler and his wife were reportedly killed in a single car crash early Wednesday morning, according to TMZ.

The report says Butler lost control of his Range Rover and struck a parking meter before crashing into a wall around 2 a.m. in Studio City, California. Police believe Butler had been speeding prior to the accident, according to the report.

Butler, a 13-year veteran in the NBA, was drafted by the Miami Heat in 2002 and went on to play for several different teams during his career. He most recently played for the San Antonio Spurs during the 2015-16 season before retiring later that year.

Over his career, Butler also played for the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Chicago Bulls, Toronto Raptors, Indiana Pacers and Washington Wizards.

He also played in Ice Cube’s BIG3 league as well.
