(Los Angeles, CA) -- The interim CEO of the Los Angeles Clippers says head coach Doc Rivers will quit if Donald Sterling still owns the team next season. Richard Parsons testified Tuesday in the trial to determine if Shelly Sterling has the right to sell the Clippers after doctors found Donald Sterling to be mentally unfit. Parsons says Donald Sterling's ownership of the team leaves "a cloud" over the franchise that could result in sponsors abandoning the team. He also testified that Rivers told him that if Sterling still owned the team, he doesn't want to continue as coach.
