Wayne Ellington afwezig na moord op vader


Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Wayne Ellington heeft voor onbepaalde tijd verlof, naar aanleiding van de moord op zijn vader afgelopen zondag. Ellington’s vader werd doodgeschoten in Philadelphia.

Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak heeft zojuist de volgende statement naar buiten gebracht:

Our players are upset for their friend and teammate. Additionally, ownership and all Lakers employees are also saddened by this tragedy. Those of us who work with and have gotten to know Wayne have come to know what a wonderful and caring person he is. Our hearts go out to Wayne and his family, as do our thoughts and prayers.

Wanneer Ellington zich weer bij de Lakers zal gaan voegen is onduidelijk. Zelf zei hij het volgende:

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