The NBA has appointed a new CEO for the Clippers. Former Citigroup chairman and CEO of Time Warner, Dick Parsons. Parsons was following the Sterling situation, but helping wasn’t on his radar until the NBA commissioner Adam Silver and league officials reached out to him early last week.
“He said one of the reason he came out here was because the last guy said, ‘You run the basketball side, I’ll run the business side.’ That’s where I’m coming from,” Parsons said. “I don’t have any thoughts on the draft or player personnel. I told him, ‘You run the basketball side. I’ll run the business side and we’ll get this done together.’ “
