Clippers shooting guard Reggie Bullock is coping with the apparent murder of a sibling. WJZ is reporting that a transgender woman found dead in Baltimore was his sister. Bullock confirmed to that station that the slain woman, identified as Mia Henderson, was born Kevin Long and was his sibling. Bullock expressed some of his grief on Twitter:

From the Associated Press:

 Baltimore police say the 26-year-old Henderson was found dead early Wednesday morning in an alley in northwest Baltimore. Police have not identified any suspects or established a motive, and they don’t know yet whether there’s any connection to the slaying of another transgender woman last month.

Bullock is heading into his second season with the Clippers, after the team took him 25th overall in the 2013 draft. The North Carolina product is sitting out the NBA’s summer league because he is recuperating from a quad injury.

Correction: An earlier version of this post incorrectly identified Henderson as Bullock’s brother, she was his sister.

This former editor and part-time writer at The Post is now happy to prove that if you combine 'blowhard' and 'blaggard,' you get 'blogger.' He previously had used 'Desmond Bieler' as his byline, but feels that shortening the first name to 'Des' nicely conveys his ever-decreasing gravitas. He also covers Fantasy Football.
