Former Utah Jazz All-Star Mark Eaton died suddenly at the age of 64.
Eaton, a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, went for a bike ride Friday evening in Summit County, Utah, at around 8 p.m. and did not return home, according to Cristina Flores and David James of KUTV. A cause of death is not yet known, but no foul play is suspected.
Eaton’s death came as a total shock. Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported that he was just in Chicago on Tuesday to watch umpire Joe West break baseball’s record for most games umpired of all time.
