Sad news out of Memphis. Dana Davis, the Grizzlies vice president of basketball operations, was discovered dead in his apartment, reports the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

He was 56 and no foul play is suspected. He had not been seen since Tuesday afternoon and both Grizzlies employees and the Memphis police entered his apartment to find him, according to the CA.

Davis, nicknamed “Double D,” was in charge of development programs for the Grizzlies and plus he took care of the road accommodations and everything needed when the team traveled. He also was on the board of the National Civil Rights Museum.

Our condolences to the Grizzlies and Davis family.

    “…plus he took care of the road accommodations and everything needed when the team traveled.”

    Somehow, I’m guessing that was handled by somebody way further down the chain. I’m just not able to visualize anybody with Vice President in front of their name making sure the trainers had hotel reservations and that the bus was going to be at the airport on time.
