NBA Owners to Take First Step Today to Force Sale of L.A. Clippers

NBA owners could take the first step today in forcing Donald Sterling to sell the Los Angeles Clippers.  

The owners' advisory and finance committee meets in a conference call later today.

A league source says the committee hopes to provide "clarity" on how to proceed.

It comes after commissioner Adam Silver on Tuesday banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million for making racist remarks.

NBA by-laws require a three-fourths vote by the board of governors, the team owners, to force out an owner.  

Sterling bought the Clippers for $12 million dollars in 1981.

The team has been valued recently at well over half a billion dollars.
