(Minneapolis, MN) -- Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor is backing the decision by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to ban Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life. Taylor was on the committee that recommended the lifetime ban and two-point-five million dollar fine for racist comments Sterling made to his girlfriend that were caught on tape. Like Commissioner Silver, he wants new ownership as soon as possible for the Clippers. Taylor says he will vote to force a sale, and is confident at least 24 team owners will do so.
