[new_royalslider id=”142″]

Following the first full day of the aftermath of alleged racial comments made by NBA owner Donald Sterling, reports started to surface about Magic Johnson and the Guggenheim Partners showing interest in purchasing the Los Angeles Clippers.

With Magic showing he’s more than capable of being an owner of a professional sports franchise, after taking over the Los Angeles Dodgers with the Guggenheim Partners, the former face of the Los Angeles Lakers showing interest in taking over the Clippers makes sense from a business standpoint.

Although a verdict hasn’t been handed down from the NBA in terms of a punishment for Sterling, the consensus seems to be that he’ll be pushed out or forced to sell the team in some form or another.

Despite reports of Magic and the Guggenheim Partners wanting a chance to purchase the Clippers, the five-time NBA champion refuted the reports on Monday saying the following on his Twitter account:

Without a decision being made on Sterling’s fate, Magic making this comment is typical and expected. If Sterling is forced to sell the team or simply elects to sell Clippers after receiving punishment from the league on Tuesday, it’ll be interesting to see if Magic changes his stance.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver will have a press conference on Tuesday afternoon to address the Sterling issue and will likely let the NBA’s intentions be known.There’s been no indication of what the NBA might do with Sterling, but after the nationwide backlash, expect the punishment to be severe and swift.
