PORTLAND, Ore. (KPTV) - Former Portland Trail Blazers player and Purdue standout Caleb Swanigan has died at the age of 25.

Purdue Men’s Basketball posted the news on their Twitter account Tuesday morning saying “the world lost a gentle soul last night.” A coroner would only say Swanigan died of natural causes, but did not provide any further details.

The Blazers drafted Swanigan in 2017. He played three seasons in Portland.

The Blazers posted on Twitter saying they are heartbroken by Swanigan’s passing and their “thoughts and prayers are with Caleb’s family, friends and all who loved him.”
