ESPN and the AP report:

Police say former Duke basketball player Thomas Emma plunged from the 12th floor of the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan to his death in an apparent suicide.

Police say Emma’s body was found at 11:30 a.m. ET Tuesday on a second-floor landing of the building on Central Park South.

The athletic club had no comment.

Emma, 49, was drafted in the 10th round of the 1983 NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls, but never played for them.

In 110 career games for the Blue Devils, including 71 starts, Emma scored 784 points (7.1 ppg) and had 245 assists.
