During the trial over the Clippers sale, the interim CEO of the Clippers testified in court that Doc Rivers, the coach and team president, has stated on multiple occasions that he doesn’t think he wants to continue to work for the team if Sterling remains the owner.

Sterling is being forced to sell his team by the NBA following a series of racist remarks that were made public during the 2014 NBA playoffs. Sterling is fighting the sale of the team.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Clippers have 12/1 odds to win the NBA Finals next season. Cleveland is the favorite with 3/1 odds while San Antonio has 9/2 odds to repeat.
