After being waived by the Rockets, Honeycutt went to Europe, where he most recently played with BC Khimki in Russian Federation. The LAPD later stated on Twitter that Tyler "appears to have sustained injuries consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot wound".

Honeycutt played two seasons at UCLA from 2009 to 2011 and then spent two seasons with the Sacramento Kings after being taken in the second round of the 2011 NBA Draft. He went to the Kings in 2011 National Basketball Association draft, but only played 24 National Basketball Association games before continuing his career overseas.

Honeycutt, 27, was the No. 28 ranked player in the country coming out of Sylmar High School in California.
