TULSA, Okla. (AP) -Former Oklahoma star and NBA player Wayman Tisdale has died at 44 after fighting cancer the past two years.
St. John Medical Center in Tulsa says he died Friday morning.
The 6-foot-9 forward from Tulsa was a three-time All-American for Oklahoma. He spent 12 seasons in the NBA with the Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns.
He first learned he had a cancerous cyst below his right knee after he broke his leg in a fall at his home in Los Angeles in 2007. His leg was amputated last August, but he had made several public appearances since.
