awks owner Bruce Levenson announced earlier this week he will sell the team due to a racially insensitive email from 2012. General manager Danny Ferry was also disciplined by the team for reading a racist comment about Luol Deng.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver said he doesn't think Ferry should be fired for his comments.
