Oprah Might Buy Clippers Off Donald Sterling
By Alex Panisch
With the fall out from Donald Sterling’s racist rant seeming to grow exponentially, it feels like it’ll only be a matter of time until Sterling’s forced to sell L.A.’s second favorite team.
Now that he’s been banned for life from the NBA and there’s across the board pressure for him to unload the team and make himself scarce, the question on everyone’s mind is less if he’ll sell the team and more to whom he’ll sell it.
ESPN reports that the most powerful woman in media might be teaming up with media mogu—and No. 22 on Out's Power 50—l David Geffen and fifth-wealthiest man in the world, Larry Ellison, to buy the team from Sterling.
The New York Post notes that the Clippers are the 13th most valuable team in the NBA, valued at $575, but it could sell for millions more.
