Former Celtics forward Brandon Hunter has died at the age of 42

Our condolences and prayers go out to the family and friend of former Boston Celtics Brandon Hunter who has died suddenly at the age of 42. At this time there is no official cause of death that has been reported and verified. Hunter was drafted by the Boston Celtics in the 2003 NBA draft. He played in 36 games as a rookie for the Celtics, starting 12 of them, but then was claimed by the Charlotte Bobcats in their 2004 expansion draft. Hunter was then traded to the Orlando Magic where he played one final season in the NBA.
