Harrison police said former Knicks coach Isiah Thomas took 10 sleeping pills in what they called an accidental overdose.
Police said they were called to Thomas' home after the former New York Knicks coach overdosed on sleeping pills early Friday morning, News 4 New York has learned.
Thomas' wife Lynn called police after finding Thomas had taken 10 Lunesta sleeping pills, sources say.
Harrison Police Department Officer Vincent Lanzillotti declined to give details, except to say a person was taken to White Plains Hospital Center, about 5 miles from the home.
Harris Emergency Medical Service declined to confirm what happened, citing medical privacy laws.
Madison Square Garden spokesman Barry Watkins told The Journal News newspaper, "Isiah is fine."
The Knicks had no comment. A message left with Thomas' public relations agency wasn't immediately returned.
Reached on his cell phone the 47-year-old Thomas told the New York Post he had not been treated for a sleeping pill overdose, and that it was his 17-year-old daughter Lauren who had a medical issue.
It "wasn't an overdose," he told the newspaper. "My daughter is very down right now. None of us are OK."
Late Friday afternoon, a small SUV escorted by a police car pulled into a private road leading to the luxury development in Westchester County where Thomas lives, about 30 miles from midtown Manhattan.
Thomas purchased the house on Azalea Circle in Purchase for more than $4 million in 2004, according to the Journal News.
In April of 2008, Donnie Walsh was introduced as Thomas' replacement as President of Basketball Operations for the Knicks.
Thomas currently works for the team in unnamed role and is not allowed to have contact with any Knicks' players.
