David Geffen interested in buying LA Clippers
Billionaire media executive David Geffen is interested in buying the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team, according to a person with knowledge of Geffen's thinking, following a decision by National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver to ban Clipper owner Donald Sterling for life.

 

Silver said he would urge other NBA team owners to force Sterling to sell the pro franchise.

 

The NBA on Tuesday banned Sterling from the game for life and fined him $2.5 million for racist comments that drew a storm of outrage from players, fans, commercial sponsors and even President Barack Obama. (Reuters)
