NBA, Pistons settle lawsuit over G League player's death

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) The NBA and the Detroit Pistons have settled a lawsuit with the family of a G League player who died after collapsing during a game last year.

Zeke Upshaw played for the Grand Rapids Drive, a G League affiliate of the Pistons. He died two days after he was stricken.

A lawsuit filed by Upshaw's estate said lifesaving measures weren't attempted in a timely manner. Robert Hilliard, a lawyer for Upshaw's mother, informed a judge Wednesday that a deal has been reached with the NBA and the Pistons. No details were disclosed.

The NBA confirmed a settlement and expressed sympathy to Upshaw's family.

The lawsuit continues against other defendants in federal court in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
