FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The Allen County Coroner’s Office says that former Homestead and Purdue basketball standout Caleb Swanigan has died at 25 of natural causes.
Swanigan died Monday night. The coroner’s office says they were contacted but will not be investigating his death.

Swanigan played two seasons in Portland before he was traded to Sacramento in 2019. He was traded back to Portland in 2020, but opted out of the NBA Bubble later that season.
