LOS ANGELES (AP) - The interim CEO hand-picked by the NBA to run the Los Angeles Clippers says he's confident the league will succeed in forcing a sale of the team.
Dick Parsons arrived in Los Angeles on Monday to meet with management and staff of the Clippers, whose owner Donald Sterling has been banned for life by the NBA and fined $2.5 million after recordings of him making racist comments surfaced.
Parsons says he's just beginning to familiarize himself with the workings of the team, which is in the midst of competing in the playoffs.
Asked about Sterling apologizing in a television interview airing Monday, Parsons says, ''He's a little late, to be sure.''
Parsons says he's being paid by the NBA, but he doesn't report to Commissioner Adam Silver or the league's other owners.
