Hall of Fame forward Connie Hawkins has died according to a press release made Saturday by the Phoenix Suns.

Hawkins, who played his college basketball at the University of Iowa, began his professional playing career in the ABL due to his connection to the leader of a point-shaving scandal in college.

The 27-year-old Curry, the younger brother of Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, was projected to start in Dallas' backcourt this season. "I was innocent, but no one would listen to me". Then-commissioner J. Walter Kennedy lifted the ban in 1969.

People dressed in white gathered in both cities under the slogan "Shall we talk?" in a message to Spain's political leaders. Catalan authorities say the "Yes" vote for secession won by a landslide, although less than half of the electorate voted.

It was unclear when the injury occurred, but Curry played in the pre-season game at Orlando on Thursday night when he shot 4-of-14 from the field. "People still to this day ask me if I was bitter about that, and I still tell them".

Hawkins made the All-Star team in each of his first four years in the National Basketball Association, all of those appearances coming with the Suns.

He also played for the Los Angeles Lakers and the Atlanta Hawks. He won MVP honors as the team posted a league-best 54-24 record during the regular season and helped them win a title, beating the New Orleans Buccaneers in seven games in the inaugural championship series. However, his performances across the ABL, ABA, and NBA cemented a place for him in the basketball Hall of Fame.

Jerry Colangelo, the Suns original general manager who went on to own the franchise, has said that if Mr. Hawkins would have come into the league through college at the normal age, "he could have been one of the top 10 or 15 players to ever play the game".
