Mike Bass, the NBA executive vice president of communications, released a statement Saturday, saying: "The best way to ensure the stability of the team during this difficult situation is to move quickly and install a CEO to oversee the Clippers organization. The process of identifying that individual is underway."

The decision was welcomed by Sterling’s wife, Rochelle, who said she was fully committed to making the Clippers the best team in the NBA.

"I spoke with Commissioner Adam Silver this week to tell him that I fully supported his recent swift and decisive action," Rochelle Sterling said.
