NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA has called a Tuesday news conference to make an announcement about the investigation involving Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

The league says it will announce further details, though it’s not clear when those are coming.

Sterling is being investigated over allegations he made racially charged comments in a recorded conversation with a woman. Portions of that conversation were released over the weekend by TMZ and Deadspin.

The players’ union has asked Commissioner Adam Silver to rule quickly, preferably before the Clippers play host to Golden State in a critical Game 5 of their knotted-up Western Conference first-round series on Tuesday night. Silver has said the league would move quickly on the matter.

  • already guilty

    guilty until proven innocent. such a bunch of BS. it’s just because he is white. so many double standards still.

    • Doggone

      You’re right. It’s getting about time when the white race starts crying racism!!!

  • Doggone

    He made a recorded conversation?
    The President of the United States got involved? Why?
    Because he mentioned ” black people”?
    I realized that this is a sensitive subject, but what ever happened to our freedom of speech?

    • gina

      Freedom of speech does not and should not apply when it’s used for something as ignorant as his comments. It’s ridiculous and disturbing all in one, especially when the majority of his team is African American. Sterling is an idiot and should step down ASAP!

        Sorry Gina, but I couldn’t find that definition in the Constitution. Is this just your opinion? Please correct me if I’m wrong and tell me where to find this wording, thanks.
