NEW YORK (AP) — Terrence Clarke, the former Kentucky guard who died in a car accident while preparing for the NBA draft, was recognized Thursday in a ceremony midway through the first round.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver introduced Clarke’s mother, brother and sister.
Silver embraced each of Clarke’s family members as the crowd chanted “Terrence, Terrence, Terrence!”
Clarke had declared for the NBA draft after playing one season at Kentucky. He died April 22 at the age of 19 following a car accident in Los Angeles.
