Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been at the heart of racial controversies before.
Sterling, one of the longest-tenured owners of an NBA franchise, is alleged to have made racist comments in an audio tape that was first posted by the celebrity gossip site TMZ.
He is also a prominent real estate mogul in LA who, ironically, has been honored for his philanthropy by the local NAACP.
The NBA says it will announce findings Tuesday afternoon from its investigation into the controversy.
