Butler, 38, who was originally drafted by the Miami Heat in 2002, had a long NBA career after a great college career at La Salle where he was a 2-time First Team All-Atlantic 10 Player. He was also inducted into the La Salle Hall of Athletics.

His career in the NBA, which lasted until 2016, included stints with the Hornets, Clippers, Bulls, Raptors, Pacers, Wizards and Spurs.

The ex-NBAer most recently played in Ice Cube’s BIG3 league.

Butler’s wife Leah LaBelle was an R&B singer who was signed to Epic Records. She placed 12th on the 3rd Season of “American Idol” back in 2004.

Rasual is survived by a daughter from a previous relationship, Raven Butler.
