On TNT’s pre-game show Tuesday night, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said he hasn’t decided how he’s going to vote when the NBA decides if embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling should be forced to sell his team.
“We’ve got to go through due process,’’ Cuban said. “If we want this to play out and we want this to be done right, I trust (commissioner) Adam Silver and his staff to go through the exact process that needs to take place.
“I’m going to trust Adam in the process and I'll make a decision then.’’
Cuban said he recently told folks at Inc. Magazine that he had already made a decision concerning Sterling, who was heard on tape making racial and disparaging remarks about African-Americans and other minorities.
“At Inc., I told people that I’d already decided and that was more just to get all the questions stopped,’’ Cuban said. “I couldn’t answer them, and I didn’t want them to continue.
“I don’t know how I’m going to vote. I’m going to let the process go through, but again I trust Adam and his staff to do it the right way in accordance with our by-laws, our constitution and the law.’’
A vote by the NBA owners on Sterling’s fate is expected to come on June 3.
