EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Los Angeles Lakers player Lamar Odom's 6-month-old son has died, a spokesman for the team said Thursday.

Jayden Odom died Wednesday night, apparently suffocating while sleeping in his crib in New York, according to John Black.

"Lamar is very distraught," Black said. "Both he and the baby's mother are asking that people respect their privacy at this time."

Jayden was born Dec. 15. Odom has two older children -- a son and a daughter.

"Lamar is very distraught," Black said. "Both he and the baby's mother are asking that people respect their privacy at this time."

Jayden was born Dec. 15. Odom has two older children -- a son and a daughter.

The 26-year-old Odom came to the Lakers two years ago in the trade that sent Shaquille O'Neal to the Miami Heat. Odom averaged 14.8 points, 9.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists in 80 games for the Lakers last season and 19.1 points, 11.0 rebounds and 4.9 assists in their first-round playoff series against the Phoenix Suns.

Peace to the Odom family. Typical media shoving his stats out just for the heck of it. Show some class.

I can't imagine losing a child. How I'd deal with it.

I hope he can find peace somehow.

Parents' worst nightmare. Thoughts of SIDS and suffocation gave me several sleepless nights with my children.

My prayers to the family.
