Former Hawks All-Star Roundfield drowns in Aruba

Former NBA All-Star Dan Roundfield was vacationing with his family in Aruba when he drowned on Monday.

The 59-year-old Roundfield spent 11 seasons in the NBA after being selected with the 28th pick overall by Cleveland in the 1975 draft.

The Detroit native played for the Indiana Pacers (1976-78), Atlanta Hawks (1978-84), Detroit Pistons (1984-85) and Washington Bullets (1985-87). The Central Michigan product was named to three NBA All-Star teams.

He is survived by his wife Bernadette, his sons Christopher and Corey and their grandchildren.

"The Atlanta Hawks family is deeply saddened by the passing of Danny Roundfield, who died Monday, August 6, in Aruba," Hawks president of basketball operations and general manager Danny Ferry said in a statement. "Danny represented the Hawks with dignity and pride both on and off the court, and this is a tragic loss for us all. Our hearts go out to the Roundfield family, his wife Bernadette, his two sons Christopher and Corey, and his grandchildren."
