Magic denies rumors he is trying to buy Clippers in wake of Donald Sterling scandal

NBA legend Magic Johnson is denying interest in buying the Clippers despite earlier reports on Monday claiming otherwise.

Johnson is part of the Guggenheim Partners, which owns the Los Angeles Dodgers, so it wasn’t completely unreasonable to think the former hoops star would be interested in buying out the team.

Johnson was included in Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s alleged racist rant.

Johnson responded by vowing to never attend a Clippers game as long as Sterling is owner.
