Report: NBA Commissioner David Stern Plans To Retire In 2014

David Stern has been commissioner of the NBA for longer than some of its players have been alive, but the Stern era may be ending soon -- a New York Daily News report says Stern will be stepping down in 2014.

"At one point, he had talked about doing it for one more season, but it looks now like two more," said a league source.

Insiders tell the Daily News that Stern will break the news to his owners at the Board of Governors meeting in April. Reportedly, there won't even be a search to find a replacement for Stern, as deputy commissioner Adam Silver is a lock to take the job when Stern moves on.

A former lawyer, Stern took over as commissioner in 1984, succeeding Larry O'Brien. His 28-year tenure has seen seven new franchises, 28 new arenas, and four lockouts, most recently in 2011.
