The NBA owners' advisory/finance committee held its first meeting about Donald Sterling via conference call Friday to discuss ending his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers "as expeditiously as possible," the league said in a statement.

The 10-member committee discussed "the process for termination of Donald T. Sterling's ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers," the league statement said.

The first meeting between the owners comes in the same week that NBA commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million for making racist comments.

Silver said Tuesday that he also would urge owners to force Sterling to sell.
