R.J. Adelman, son of veteran NBA coach, killed in accident

HOUSTON (AP) - Former NBA coach Rick Adelman's son was killed in an auto-pedestrian accident in downtown Houston.

Police say 44-year-old Richard "R.J." Adelman was not using a crosswalk to cross the street when he was struck and killed Feb. 2 by a minivan. No charges were filed against the driver.

Adelman had been an assistant on his father's staff when the elder Adelman coached the Houston Rockets from 2007-11. He also was player personnel director for the Minnesota Timberwolves when his father coached there.
