No NBA owners saying they’ll side with Donald Sterling

Wed., April 30, 2014

A majority of NBA ownership groups reached Tuesday by The Associated Press say they will vote to force embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling to sell his club.

When asked by AP if they would vote to remove Sterling, 16 ownership groups said they would, while eight declined to reveal their stance. The other five, not including the Clippers, could not be reached.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver wants Sterling to sell as part of the sanctions over racist remarks.

For Sterling to be forced to sell, 75 percent of NBA clubs would have to vote in favor of such a move.
