Blake Griffin: 'Donald Sterling situation needs swift resolution'

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin says that there needs to be a "swift" resolution regarding Donald Sterling's ownership of the team.

Blake Griffin has said that the issue of Donald Sterling's ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers needs a "swift" resolution.

The NBA is trying to force Sterling to sell the team after he was banned for life by the league for making racist comments.

The forward told ESPN: "I don't anticipate that [Sterling will still own the team at the start of next season]. If it still is, I'll make a decision then. It's not something that's ideal.

"Personally, I don't know all the ins and outs of everything. I hear stuff just like everybody else does, but I don't know what's really true or not. It's up to [the league], but I don't think that's an ideal situation for us, to start next season with that still going on.

"I think something should happen and I think it should happen quickly. I think guys need to make decisions. I don't think anybody wants this to drag out except for one or two people. I think it needs to be swift. We need to make our decision or they need to make their decision or whatever it is and make a change."

The Clippers were knocked out of the playoffs earlier this week by the Oklahoma City Thunder.
