According to police, former Pistons coach Isiah Thomas overdosed on sleeping pills.
Harrison police were called to the NBA legend's home around midnight last night to investigate a report of a possible overdose on sleeping pills. Police did not indicate how many pills Thomas took.
Thomas was fired as coach of the New York Knicks earlier this year. Two years ago, Thomas was sued by a former Knicks employee who accused him of sexual harassment.
Thomas and Madison Square Garden reached a settlement with the woman last year.
Published reports say the call came in just after midnight, describing a 46-year-old male at the Azalea Circle home. It was not indicated whether drugs or alcohol were involved. Thomas is 47.
New York Knicks officials would only say that Isiah Thomas is fine. (Source)
