The NBA is planning a Tuesday news conference to discuss the investigation into embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who is alleged to have made racist comments in a taped conversation.
NBA spokesman Mike Bass said additional details will be announced, though it’s unclear when that may happen.
The news conference is a clear sign NBA Commissioner Adam Silver — in the first real crisis of his short tenure — is both following through on his plan to move quickly on this matter and adhering to a request from the players’ union for some sort of resolution in short order.

“He should not continue owning the clippers,” Lakers star Kobe Bryant wrote Monday on Twitter.
Fallout from the Sterling scandal continued Monday, with CarMax — the nation’s largest retailer of used vehicles — ending its sponsorship of the team. The company said in a statement it finds the statements attributed to Sterling “completely unacceptable.”
“While we have been a proud Clippers sponsor for nine years and support the team, fans and community, these statements necessitate that CarMax end its sponsorship,” it added.
Portions of the recordings were released over the weekend by TMZ and Deadspin. Silver’s first step in the process was to authenticate that Sterling’s voice is on the tape, and while the NBA has not confirmed that it is, Sterling’s wife attributed the comments to her husband.
