Wayne Ellington’s father killed in Philadelphia

Our condolences are going out to former North Carolina Tar Heel and 2009 NCAA Tournament MOP Wayne Ellington on the death of his father Sunday night. Details are still shaky at this point but we keep Wayne in our thoughts as he takes an indefinite leave of absence from the Los Angeles Lakers.

Wayne’s Statement:

“My family and I are devastated by the news of my father’s murder on Sunday night in Philadelphia,” said Ellington. “We appreciate everyone’s support and ask that you respect the privacy of our family during this very difficult time.”
