Los Angeles Clippers Forward Blake Griffin has spoken out on the current ownership saga surrounding the NBA franchise.

Griffin has spoken out and said that he doesn't expect Donald Sterling to be the owner of the Clippers next season.

However Griffin also claimed that he would have a decision to make should the banned for life owner still have control of the franchise.

Sterling was banned for life from the NBA and fined $2.5 million by Commissioner Adam Silver after he was recorded making racist remarks.

Sterling has since claimed he will not pay the fine given to him and has hinted at a long ensuing legal battle to settle the matter.

Griffin tried to keep his focus on the court however claiming that: "It's definitely not the forefront of what I'm thinking about,

"Unfortunately, I think between that [Sterling situation], the Warriors, that series, Game seven of that series, the way we won Game four [against the Thunder], the way we lost Game five ... all of that combined took a lot out of us."

The Clippers lost game six of their play-off series with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night and were eliminated from the NBA play-offs.

The Clippers seem now to be shaping up as one of the NBA franchises to watch over the upcoming off-season but for all the wrong reasons.
