GRIZZLIES EXECUTIVE PASSES AWAY

Memphis Grizzlies assistant general manager Kenny Williamson lost his battle with cancer on Tuesday morning. He was 65 years old. Williamson had just begun his sixth season with the Grizzlies, a franchise that has struggled since its inception in 1995, but has recently become a winning team. Williamson helped oversee the team as it began to acquire key players such as Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol and Tony Allen, who have been instrumental in getting the Grizzlies to the playoffs in consecutive seasons. Williamson was previously a scout for the Charlotte Bobcats and the New York Knicks, and worked as a college assistant for 21 years (Yahoo! Sports).
