In light of Clippers owner Donald Sterling's lifetime ban from the NBA, the league announced Saturday that the NBA will work in conjunction with the Clippers to find a CEO to oversee the team's operations, according to the NBA's PR Twitter.

The official statement from the league states: "The NBA, in consultation with L.A. Clippers management, will be appointing a CEO to supervise the team's operations."

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million for the racist comments he made on an audio recording.

The process of identifying that individual is underway."
