LOS ANGELES (AP) — Clippers coach Doc Rivers says employees on the team’s business side considered not working for the franchise after owner Donald Sterling’s racist comments were exposed a week ago.

Rivers met with team employees who were still upset and angry Friday, several days after Sterling was banned for life from the NBA.

Rivers says he made the trip downtown at the request of other top executives with the Clippers, who will play the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of their first-round playoff series Saturday night.

Rivers spent Friday morning at the Clippers’ team offices, listening to employees in ticket sales, marketing and other departments.

The coach says it was “really hard” to see the pain in the employees who took the brunt of public backlash against the Clippers.
