magic johnson dodgers 2014Magic Johnson is currently one of the owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers and could be on his way to owning another franchise in the city. That team is the Clippers, which is owned by Donald Sterling, the racist who said that he doesn't want black people, including Magic himself, at the Clippers games.

The NBA will release a statement on Sterling on Tuesday. Many are assuming that it's only a matter of time now that Sterling is no longer the Clippers owner as Johnson and his team will buy the franchise away from the 81-year-old.

From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:
Magic Johnson and his billionaire backers, the Guggenheim Partners, want a chance to purchase the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. “Magic’s absolutely interested,” one source closely connected to Johnson’s business interests told Yahoo Sports on Sunday night.

Make no mistake: Magic’s Dodgers group is angling for a Southern California sports empire. Magic Johnson and Guggenheim had been aggressive in pursuing a purchase of the Los Angeles Lakers – only to have the Buss family make clear to them the franchise isn’t for sale, sources told Yahoo Sports.

“This is 100 percent Magic’s plan,” a league official intimately involved in the buying and selling of franchises told Yahoo Sports.
