“If Mr. Sterling continues to own the team, [Rivers] doesn’t want to continue as coach,” Parsons said.
As the trial in Los Angeles Superior Court that could determine the fate of Steve Ballmer’s $2-billion purchase of the Clippers continued, Parsons expressed concern about the future of Rivers and Clippers players.
“If Doc were to leave, that would be a disaster,” Parsons said.
Parson also raised the possibility that Clippers players could boycott games next season if Sterling maintained ownership.
“I’ve talked to a number of players who are genuinely concerned about what to do,” Parsons said.
