Now that the NBA has placed a lifetime ban upon Donald Sterling, they will hold a vote to force him to sell the Clippers. Currently, all of the other 29 owners have spoken out in support of the NBA's sanctions and against Donald Sterling's words. It seems inevitable that as soon as a vote can be held, Sterling will finally be ousted as owner of the Clippers.
So, once the NBA passes the vote to force sale of the team, who will be the Clippers next owner? The five names linked so far are David Geffen, Patrick Soon-Shiong, Larry Ellison, Rick Caruso, and Magic Johnson (and his Guggenheim partners).
David Geffen was linked as a potential buyer for the franchise in 2010, and it is not surprising that he is interested in the Clippers now that the team is actually, you know, for sale.
