Now that Los Angeles Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling has been banned from the NBA and has been fined $2.5 million, the NBA’s players want commissioner Adam Silver and the league to take one final step.
NBA Player’s Union Vice President Roger Mason, Jr. wants and expects the league to strip Donald Sterling of the Clippers.
“I would imagine it would be tough for a kid getting drafted or a free agent player making a decision to lay for this franchise without a change of ownership in place,” Mason Jr. told Mark Medina of The Los Angeles Daily News. “I would hope it gets done sooner or later.”
Mason expects the NBA to strip not only Sterling, but his entire family, of the team.
