CEO: Sterling staying on a ‘disaster’ for Clippers (Yahoo Sports)

Coach Doc Rivers has said he’ll resign from the Los Angeles Clippers if Donald Sterling remains owner, the team’s interim CEO testified, saying such a move would be a ”disaster” for the franchise. ”If Mr. Sterling continues as owner, he does not want to continue as coach,” Richard Parsons said in court Tuesday, recounting recent conversations with Rivers. His testimony was a rare foray into the basketball side of the Clippers at a probate-court trial that has focused on the narrow question of whether Sterling’s wife, Shelly, can sell the team for $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer as the NBA looks to force Donald Sterling from the league over racist statements.

Andrew Wiggins will sign his rookie contract with the Cavaliers. A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cavs will sign the No. 1 overall pick to his deal, an agreement that would prevent any potential trade involving the small forward from being completed for 30 days. The Minnesota Timberwolves and Cavaliers have been discussing a potential deal that would send All-Star forward Kevin Love to the Cavaliers for Wigging, Anthony Bennett and other pieces. The person familiar with the talks says Wiggins will sign with Cleveland as early as Wednesday.
