NBA charges Clippers owner Donald Sterling

June 3 hearing could end Sterling's ownership of team

The NBA has initiated a charge against Donald Sterling, setting up a June 3 hearing after which owners could vote to terminate his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers.

The charge Monday asserts that Sterling has damaged the NBA and its teams, disparaged African-Americans and that he his actions "significantly undermine the NBA's efforts to promote diversity and inclusion."

Sterling, who has been banned for life by Commissioner Adam Silver after the release of a recording in which he made racist remarks, has until May 27 to respond to the charge, and the right to appear at the hearing in front of the board of governors.

If three-fourths of the owners vote to sustain the charge, Sterling will be forced to sell the team he has owned since 1981.
