Clippers Head Coach Vinny Del Negro and team owner Donald Sterling are meeting this weekend to decide Vinny's future.

According to Chris Haynes of Comcast Sporstnet...

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has scheduled to meet with head coach Vinny Del Negro over the weekend to discuss Del Negro's fate with the organization, a league source informed CSNNW.com.

According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the situation, says the two will meet in Los Angeles and a decision is anticipated shortly after.

The uncertainty of Del Negro's job status has been lingering over his head and coaching staff ever since the Clippers were bounced out of the playoffs in the first round by the Memphis Grizzlies, a team they took care of a year ago in the first round.

Clippers' assistant coaches operate on annual one-year deals. If Del Negro is brought back, the coaching staff is expected to remain intact.

Del Negro's contract expires June 30.
