OBIT-HEISLEY
Michael Heisley, billionaire who owned NBA's Grizzlies, dies at 77

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 10:30 PM EDT
MEMPHIS, Tenn.


Michael Heisley, the billionaire businessman who bought the Vancouver Grizzlies and moved the NBA team to Memphis, died Saturday. He was 77.

The Grizzlies said Saturday night that a family member confirmed Heisley's death. The Commercial Appeal reported that Heisley died in Illinois of complications from a massive stroke he suffered nearly 15 months ago.

Heisley sold the team to Robert Pera before the start of the 2012-13 season.

Heisley, chairman emeritus and co-founder of The Heico Companies, LLC, bought the team in April 2000. He moved the club from Vancouver to Memphis and hired NBA great Jerry West as president of basketball operations.

The team held a moment of silence for Heisley before their playoff game Saturday night against Oklahoma City.
