ATLANTA (AP) - Six-time All-Star Lou Hudson has died at 69. The Atlanta Hawks say he died Friday in Atlanta.

He was hospitalized and listed in grave condition last month after a stroke. Hudson starred for the franchise in St. Louis and Atlanta.

He averaged 20.2 points in 13 NBA seasons, including 11 with the Hawks. He finished his career with the Lakers. His No. 23 was retired by the Hawks. Bob Pettit and Dominique Wilkins are the only other Hawks players to have their numbers retired.

The University of Minnesota also retired Hudson's number. Hudson, a native of Greensboro, N.C., was a first-round pick by St. Louis in 1966. He scored the first points for the Atlanta Hawks in 1968.
