Carmax Says It Is Ending LA Clippers Sponsorship; NBA Says Announcement Coming Tuesday

Updated: Monday, April 28 2014, 03:02 PM CDT

Used car dealership chain CarMax says it is ending its sponsorship of the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers in the wake of racist comments attributed to team owner Donald Sterling.

Sterling is alleged to have made the comments in a recorded conversation with a woman. Portions of that conversation were released over the weekend by TMZ and Deadspin, leading to a national outcry.

"CarMax finds the statements attributed to the Clippers' owner completely unacceptable," CarMax Inc. said Monday in an emailed statement. "While we have been a proud Clippers sponsor for 9 years and support the team, fans and community, these statements necessitate that CarMax end its sponsorship."

Meanwhile, the NBA has called a news conference for tomorrow about its investigation into the matter.

The players' union has asked Commissioner Adam Silver to rule quickly, preferably before the Clippers play host to Golden State in a critical Game 5 of their knotted-up Western Conference first-round series on Tuesday night. Silver has said the league would move quickly on the matter.
