NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA owners' advisory/finance committee has held its first meeting about Donald Sterling and is committed to ending his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers "as expeditiously as possible."
The 10-member committee held a conference call Thursday to discuss "the process for termination of Donald T. Sterling's ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers," the league says in a statement.
Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million Tuesday for making racist comments. Silver said he also would urge owners to force Sterling to sell.
The committee plans to meet again next week.
Thursday it was reported by the New York Post that Sterling is suffering from cancer.
