CEO: Sterling staying on a 'disaster' for Clippers
Coach Doc Rivers has said he'll resign from the Los Angeles Clippers if Donald Sterling remains the owner, the interim CEO testified, saying such a move would be a "disaster" for the franchise.


"If Mr. Sterling continues as owner, he does not want to continue as coach," Richard Parsons said in court on Tuesday, recounting recent conversations with Rivers.


His testimony was a rare foray into the basketball side of the Clippers at a probate-court trial that has focused on the narrow question of whether Sterling's wife, Shelly, can sell the team for $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer as the NBA looks to force Donald Sterling from the league over racist statements.
