Olshey Didn't Leave Clippers Over Money

Olshey also received a substantial pay raise, believed to be in the $750,000 ballpark annually. But the Clippers also were willing to raise his salary from the $250,000 he was previously earning. "The money was a wash," Olshey says. "It wasn't about that. It was really about that proactively, Paul and Larry and the (Blazers) organization were willing to make a commitment to me. Once Portland came in, (Sterling) was willing to put any resources together. The financial part of it wasn't an issue. "I told Paul, 'If you make the offer and it's fair and equitable, I won't go and get a counter-offer (from Sterling).' Paul needed to hear that from me to know I was committed. At some point, money doesn't trump integrity. I wanted to be here because Paul wanted me here."
