NBA executive vice president of communications Mike Bass has announced that the league convened a meeting Monday of its Finance/Advisory Committee to discuss recent interviews given by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his wife Shelly Sterling, according to Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today.

The committee is working to build a case against Sterling for his removal from the league and is also overseeing the installation of interim CEO Dick Parsons, who recently met with the team's front office personnel for the first time.

Donald Sterling gave a controversial interview to CNN's Anderson Cooper on Monday night and his wife spoke about her plans to maintain control of the team with Barbara Walters last week.

Bass said the group plans to meet again next week to continue to work on the league's strategy  for the removal of Sterling from his ownership role.
