Silver: No guarantee Sterling out by season start

LAS VEGAS (AP) — NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says he is hopeful that the proposed $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers will be completed before next season begins. But he could not guarantee that will happen because the deal is currently held up in the courts. Silver spoke Tuesday evening after a meeting of the NBA's Board of Governors. He says he cannot guarantee Donald Sterling will be out as owner of the Clippers because he is fighting the sale. Sterling's wife Shelly has agreed to sell the team to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. But Donald Sterling is challenging Shelly's right to make that deal, and delays have pushed closing arguments back to July 28. Silver says the process is on hold until that case has been resolved.
