The NBA will appoint a new CEO for the Los Angeles Clippers in light of the Donald Sterling ban, per multiple reports.


The NBA will appoint a new CEO for the Los Angeles Clippers

This was confirmed by a May 4 CNN update

"It's been a week since the world learned that Donald Sterling had made racist remarks on audio recordings, casting a cloud over the professional basketball team he owns the Los Angeles Clippers. 

"On Saturday, the team had two wins to celebrate. 

"First, the NBA announced it will appoint a new chief executive officer to oversee the team's operations. The appointment will be made in consultation with the Clippers management.

"'The best way to ensure the stability of the team during this difficult situation is to move quickly and install a CEO to oversee the Clippers organization,' NBA executive vice president Mike Bass said in a statement. 'The process of identifying that individual is underway.'

"Second, the team showed that it had truly shaken off the non-basketball distractions. The Clippers defeated the Golden State Warriors 126-121 to win its first round in the NBA playoffs."

A day later, CNN's Steve Almasy reports Sterling's wife, Shelly, approved bringing in a Clippers CEO. 

"The estranged wife of banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling says she supports the decision by the National Basketball Association and the team to work together to find the franchise a new chief executive officer. 

"Shelly Sterling, a co-owner of the Clippers, said she spoke with NBA commissioner Adam Silver to tell him she supported his decision to fine her husband $2.5 million and ban him for life after racist remarks by Donald Sterling became public. 

"'We also agreed at the time that, as a next step, both the league and the team should work together to find some fresh, accomplished executive leadership for the Clippers,' Shelly Sterling said in a written statement Saturday. 

"Her statement didn't mention the potential sale of the team, which Silver has said he will press the other 29 ownership groups to mandate through a vote."

USA TODAY's Sam Amick tweeted on May 3 that "longtime Clippers president Andy Roeser will continue with the team for now. CEO would oversee all."  

Sterling purchased the then-San Diego Clippers for $13 million in 1981, according to NBC Los Angeles. News of his racist comments made over the phone with girlfriend Vanessa Stiviano broke out on April 25, 2014 on TMZ. 

 

Silver then issued a lifetime ban plus the $2.5 million fine on Sterling -- whose voice in the recording was verfied by the NBA -- four days later.  

The NBA commissioner said on April 29 the league will "force a sale" of the Clippers, the NBC Los Angeles report goes on to say.
