Tuesday’s Sports In Brief
Question of the Day
Unless Shelly Sterling finds a buyer for the team first.
The Sterlings were part combative, part cooperative Tuesday, with Donald Sterling fighting to keep his team even as his estranged wife said he had authorized her to sell it.
He didn’t seem willing to give it up - at least not without a fight - in his passionate response to the league’s attempt to oust him.
“We do not believe a court in the United States of America will enforce the draconian penalties imposed on Mr. Sterling in these circumstances, and indeed, we believe that preservation of Mr. Sterling’s constitutional rights requires that these sham proceedings be terminated in Mr. Sterling’s favor,” the response said.
Sterling argued that there is no basis for stripping him of his team because his statements were illegally recorded “during an inflamed lovers’ quarrel in which he was clearly distraught.”
CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cavaliers interviewed Chicago Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin for their coaching vacancy, two people with knowledge of the meeting told the Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the matter is private.
Griffin is believed to be the first candidate to formally interview with the Cavs, who are looking for their third coach in three years.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Grizzlies owner Robert Pera followed through on his promise to open up his checkbook by signing Dave Joerger to a contract extension just days after allowing the coach to speak to the Minnesota Timberwolves about their vacancy.
Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but Joerger said on ESPN 92.9 FM in Memphis that Pera guaranteed the fourth year of his contract with a fifth year a team option.
