Glen Taylor, Minnesota Timberwolves owner—for whom McHale worked for 15 years—issued the following statement upon learning of Sasha’s death.
“On behalf of the entire Minnesota Timberwolves organization, we are extremely saddened to learn about the passing of Sasha. While Kevin was with our organization, we all watched Sasha grow up and become an outstanding young woman. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.”
Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander released a statement of his own:
“I extend my deepest condolences to Kevin and Lynn for the loss of their beautiful daughter, Sasha, on Saturday afternoon. Kevin and Lynn are loving and dedicated parents who will need our continued support throughout this very difficult time. Our entire organization is mourning the McHale family’s loss and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers.”
Like Wilcox, Rockets starters James Harden and Chandler Parsons also issued their sentiments on Twitter.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the McHale family as they endure this time of sorrow.
