Yahoo: Sterling pushed for Paul

"Sterling then pushed Olshey, Roeser and coach Vinny Del Negro to trade for Paul, even though it cost the Clippers talented guard Eric Gordon and the Minnesota Timberwolves’ unprotected 2012 first-round draft pick. "The hardest thing we said in this whole process was, ‘We’re good. We have a chance to be good, and do we really break this up for the home run?’ " Olshey said. "We told Mr. Sterling we had two really good directions: We could continue to build – we’re going to be better this year than we were last year. We have this draft pick. The players are going to keep developing. "Or we have a chance to completely change the culture of the organization and make us a contender right away."" Most of this article is old news, but I thought it was interesting to read that, according to Spears, Sterling was the one pushing for the trade.
