Former NBA player Drew Gordon, the older brother of Denver Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon, died in a car crash on Thursday in Portland, Ore. He was 33.

The Nuggets confirmed his passing with ESPN’s Andscape. Gordon is survived by his wife, Angela, and three children.

The Clackamas County (Ore.) Sheriff’s Office report said Gordon’s “Vanderhall Carmel three-wheeled autocycle” crossed the center line and collided with a GMC Sierra pickup.

Drew Gordon appeared in nine games with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2014-15, playing a total of 71 minutes and contributing 17 points, 18 rebounds, two assists and one steal.

A McDonald’s All-American in high school in San Jose, Calif., Gordon played two seasons each at UCLA (2008-10) and New Mexico (2010-12).

He also competed in the NBA G League and played professionally overseas with stops in Serbia, Sardinia, Turkey, France, Lithuania, Ukraine and Russia. He earned All-Star honors in leagues in France and Russia.
