Wheels in motion
NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA owners’ advisory and finance committee is holding a meeting today to discuss the next steps in the removal of Donald Sterling as owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.
The 10-member committee is engaging in a conference call two days after Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life from the league and fined him $2.5 million for making racist comments. Silver also said he would urge owners to use their power to force Sterling to sell the team. Such a move requires support from three-fourths of the league’s owners.
