Chris Paul: 'Los Angeles Clippers considering boycott'

Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul admits that the team's players may boycott next season if Donald Sterling remains the side's owner.

Chris Paul has revealed that the Los Angeles Clippers' players are considering a boycott if the franchise remains in the ownership of Donald Sterling at the start of the 2014-15 season.

The NBA handed Sterling a lifetime ban after he was recorded making racist comments, and he is challenging his wife's decision to sell the team to former Microsoft executive Steve Ballmer for £2bn.

The point guard told EPSN: "That's something me and [coach] Doc [Rivers] are both talking about. Something has to happen, and something needs to happen soon, sooner rather than later.

"We're all going to talk about it, we're all definitely going to talk about it. Doc, Blake [Griffin], [DeAndre Jordan]. It's unacceptable."

The team's training camp is due to get underway in October.
