Kenny Williamson has passed away after a battle with cancer.

Williamson, who was in his 60s, was assistant general manager of the Memphis Grizzlies.

Grizzlies' GM Chris Wallace grew close to Williamson through international scouting and hired him in the Grizzlies front office during the summer of 2007. Williamson spent three seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats before coming to Memphis.

Last month, Grizzlies' vice president of basketball operations Dana Davis died suddenly at 56.
