Aubrey McClendon, the co-owner of the Oklahoma City Thunder, a man who helped move the team from Seattle to the Midwest, has died in a one-car accident. That tragedy came less than 24 hours after he had been indicted by a federal grand jury for conspiring to rig bids on oil leases.

Clay Bennett, the chairman and primary owner of the Thunder, released this statement.

Our thoughts are with the McClendon family at the time of this tragedy.
