NBA Says Announcement Coming Tuesday on Sterling

Posted: Updated:
The NBA has called a Tuesday news conference to make an announcement about the investigation involving Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
 
The league says it will announce further details, though it's not clear when those are coming.
 
Sterling is being investigated over allegations he made racially charged comments in a recorded conversation with a woman. Portions of that conversation were released over the weekend by TMZ and Deadspin.
 
The players' union has asked Commissioner Adam Silver to rule quickly, preferably before the Clippers play host to Golden State in a critical Game 5 of their knotted-up Western Conference first-round series on Tuesday night. Silver has said the league would move quickly on the matter.

Meanwhile, used car dealership chain CarMax says it is ending its sponsorship of the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers in the wake of racist comments attributed to Sterling.
 
"CarMax finds the statements attributed to the Clippers' owner completely unacceptable," CarMax Inc. said Monday in an emailed statement. "While we have been a proud Clippers sponsor for 9 years and support the team, fans and community, these statements necessitate that CarMax end its sponsorship."   (AP)
