Former LSU star Tremont Waters is currently in Las Vegas with his new Boston Celtics teammates after they made him a second-round pick last month.
He’ll likely be taking an extended leave from basketball after he got the tragic news that his father was reportedly found dead in a Connecticut hotel on Thursday.
“The father of Tremont Waters, a standout basketball player from Notre Dame High School recently drafted by the Boston Celtics, was found dead Thursday of an apparent suicide at a Kimberly Avenue hotel, police said.
Edward Waters Jr.’s death was confirmed to be a suicide, the state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said Friday.
Police said they found Waters unresponsive after they received a call about an injured person at the Super 8 Hotel around noon on Thursday.”
Prayers to Tremont and his family.
