As the sage continues between the NBA, Donald Sterling and the future ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers, some names are beginning to surface as potential purchasers of one of the more successful franchises recently in the league, most notably former NBA stars themselves.
On Friday it was revealed that former Houston Rockets star Yao Ming had expressed some interest in putting together a group to purchase the franchise, and now according to a report from ESPN’s Marc Stein, you can add Grant Hill’s name to that list as well.
Now before any sort of confusion sets in, as Stein stated, Hill is in no way affiliated with Ming’s pursuit of the Clippers, rather this is an entirely separate entity altogether.
Hill played 18 seasons in the NBA with four different teams, the Clippers being the last roster he was on in the 2013-13 campaign. He only played in 29 games and averaged just a little over three points per game in the action that he did see.
Recently, Donald Sterling turned the franchise over to his wife, Shelly, to help complete the sale of the team before the mess that was created by his controversial racist recorded comments gets any worse.
It’ll be interesting to see now who else throws their name into the had that has or has had at one time some sort of affiliation with the NBA, or like in Hill’s case, the Clippers themselves.
