Yinka Dare, the New Jersey Nets' first-round draft pick in 1994, has died after collapsing at his home. He was 32.

A medical examiner determined that Dare, pronounced dead Friday at Englewood Hospital after being rushed to the emergency room, had a heart attack due to an arrhythmia condition that was discovered when he was in college at George Washington.

He collapsed while preparing breakfast after a routine morning workout at his home.

The 7-foot-0, 265-pound Nigerian center played 110 games in four seasons with the Nets, averaging 2.1 points and 2.6 rebounds. He had only four career assists, none in his first two seasons.

Very sad. I remember watching Yinka play in the NBA, and he had potential. He was involved in the Rony Seikaly deal which sent Rony to New Jersey and Yinka to Orlando.
