NEW ORLEANS, LA — New Orleans Pelicans owner Tom Benson released the following statement Tuesday:
“In light of the serious matter facing our league, a matter that transcends sports, the New Orleans Pelicans fully support the decisions made today by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and will fully support his recommendations moving forward.”
This comes after the NBA banned Los Angeles Clippers Owner Donald Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million for the racially offensive comments that were recorded.
