Earlier today it was reported that Magic Johnson and his partners were interested in buying the Clippers, thereby giving the NBA and Adam Silver an exit strategy should they force Donald Sterling to give up the team. Tonight Magic has come out to deny he has any interest in purchasing the Clippers.
To NBA Fans, I want to put a stop to a rumor. I am not trying to buy the Clippers, they already have an owner.

Anyone buying Magic’s public denial, or is this just a move to aid the league as it sorts out the Donald Sterling fiasco? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
