NBA owners and players are publicly speaking out against Los Angeles Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling.
After his alleged racist comments surfaced, many of those owners and players are calling for Sterling to lose his team, hoping the league can at least force Sterling to sell the team.
Early Monday morning a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports claiming that Magic Johnson, who Sterling has taken shots at, and his group that owns the Los Angeles Dodgers, were going to try to buy the Clippers.
On Monday night, Johnson took to twitter to say he is not trying to buy the Clippers.
To NBA Fans, I want to put a stop to a rumor. I am not trying to buy the Clippers, they already have an owner.

Even if Johnson is telling the truth, there will be owners lining up at the door to buy a team that has two superstars in Chris Paul and Blake Griffin and has seen their value rapidly increase.
In fact, billionaire real estate developer Rick Caruso, is very interested in buying the team.
