Longtime Houston Rockets personnel scout B.J. Johnson passed away Thursday evening in a bicycle accident at the age of 65.
Johnson was one of the longest-tenured members of the Rockets' franchise.
“He was riding his bike and hit a culvert,” Johnson’s wife Claudette said. “There was construction. They are thinking he fell forward and broke his neck because there was no blood.”
Johnson was an avid bicycle rider and would typically go for 30 miles a day.
