​The son of former NBA head coach Rick Adelman was struck by a vehicle and killed while crossing the street back in Houston on February 2nd.

According to the police report, R.J. Adelman was not using a crosswalk at the time of the incident and washit by an 80-year-old woman driving a minivan. He was 44 years old.

​​The younger Adelman was a former scout for the Seattle Supersonics and Sacramento Kings. He then moved his way up to an assistant coaching position with the Houston Rockets when his father was the head coach.

Once his father moved to Minnesota to be the head coach, his son followed and took a job as director of player personnel.

Adelman played college basketball at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. He won a Division II national championship there back in 1993.

Condolences to the Adelman family at this most truly sad of time.
