The motive that allegedly drove the pair to commit the crime remains unclear; the Nevada State Police investigation will continue in the coming days. Comanche had been playing in the G-League for a few years and last season had also played one game, his only one so far, in the NBA with the Portland Trail Blazers. The Kings immediately cut him after the arrest.
