Huffington Post says that NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has announced that Donald Sterling has been fined 2.5 million dollars and banned from the NBA.

“Effective immediately, I am banning Mr. Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers organization or the NBA,” Silver said during a press conference in New York on Tuesday afternoon. “Mr. Sterling may not attend any NBA games or practices. He may not be present at any Clippers facility. He may not participate in any business or player personnel decisions.”

Silver also said he would try to force Sterling to sell the Clippers.
