Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been suspended for life and fined $2.5 million.
As I noted earlier, Adam Silver promised a quick investigation and I expected him to penalize Sterling as harshly as possible and did he ever. I personally want to commend him on taking the action needed and let everyone know that these type actions will not be tolerated. Tracy Wolfson of CBS Sports just tweeted, "Wizards staying at my hotel. Cheers just came from a room nearby after Silver made his announcement". I expect that's the reaction of just about everyone in the NBA today. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Royals released LHP Joe Paterson.
The 29-year old former Diamondbacks reliever signed a minor league deal with the Royals this year, received an invite to spring training but still failed to make the team. He struggled at Triple-A Omaha and posted a 5.68 ERA over 12 innings, so the Royals felt it was better to make room and develop other pitchers. Analysis: Howard Bender
