His daddy was a NBA sharp-shooter, and he’s just a shooter, the apple fell REAL far from his tree…
Nickey Van Exel, son of former Dallas Mavericks player Nick Van Exel, was arrested Wednesday night in connection with a recent murder.
Bradley Bassey Eyo was found shot to death near Lake Ray Hubbard the day after Christmas. Investigators determined he was murdered at a Garland home in the 6900 block of George Brown Drive and his body later dumped at the lake, less than a mile away.
Police said 20-year-old Nickey Van Exel turned himself in Wednesday and confessed to the crime. He’s a neighbor of the victim.
He is being held at the Lew Sterrett Justice Center on $1 million bond.
The senior Van Exel played for the Mavericks from 2001-2003. He finished his NBA career with the San Antonio Spurs in 2006.
Lotta confessing goin on lately, hope these cats get the redemption their looking for because where they’re going they will certainly need it.
