Pelicans guard Bryce Dejean-Jones dies at age 23

FOX NEWS - New Orleans Pelicans guard Bryce Dejean-Jones has died, according to the Dallas County (Texas) medical examiner's office.

The office did not release the cause of death.

According to a Yahoo report, Dejean-Jones was shot in the abdomen Friday night and bled to death. 

He was 23.

Dejean-Jones signed with the Pelicans as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa State. The Los Angeles-area native spent time at three colleges — USC, UNLV, and ultimately Iowa State — averaging 10.8 points per game over four seasons.

Dejean-Jones was waived by the Pelicans in October but was re-signed to back-to-back 10-day contracts two months later. He signed a two-year deal with the Pelicans in February and finished his rookie season having averaged 5.6 points and 3.4 rebounds in 14 games.
