Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is expected to meet with coach Vinny Del Negro about his future with the team, reports CBSSports.com.

Del Negro's contract expires at the end of June and he could meet with Sterling next Monday or Tuesday, but no meeting has been finalized. Del Negro is 128-102 in three seasons with the Clippers.

The Clippers won a franchise-record 56 games this season but were eliminated in six games in the first-round of the playoffs by the Memphis Grizzlies.  Point guard Chris Paul will become a free-agent this summer and can sign for more money if he stays with the team.

Paul is widely expected to re-sign with the Clippers, which was his plan all along when he was traded there in December 2011 with two years left on his contract. Under the new collective bargaining agreement, it was never even a remote possibility Paul would sign an extension when he could get a more lucrative five-year deal once he hit free agency. Paul is expected to be consulted on the head coaching decision, but people familiar with his position say it is too strong to characterize the All-Star point guard as the final decision-maker in that regard.
