NBA Initiates Charge To Terminate Donald Sterling’s Ownership Of The Clippers
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The NBA Monday initiated a charge seeking to terminate Donald Sterling’s ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers.
The charge asserts Sterling engaged in conduct that has damaged and continues to damage the NBA and its teams, according to officials.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned the 80-year-old for life from any association with the Clippers and the league and fined him $2.5 million after an audio clip of him making racist comments was made public.
The NBA said Sterling’s actions are grounds for termination under several provisions of the NBA Constitution.
