Just hours after interviewing for an assistant coaching job with the New York Knicks, former NBA coach and player Sean Rooks was shockingly found dead at the age of 46.

Rooks spent 12 years as a player with various teams, and he most recently worked in player-development with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Since his passing was announced, a number of people in the NBA community have gone to Twitter to pay their respects to Rooks and all of the great things he did.
