Magic Johnson Buying LA Clippers?

Magic Johnson and the Guggenheim Partners are interested in purchasing the Los Angeles Clippers 
from Donald Sterling.
"Magic's absolutely interested," one source closely connected to Johnson's business interests 
told Yahoo Sports on Sunday night.
Johnson and Mark Walter of the Guggenheim Partners also own the Los Angeles Dodgers and were previously interested in purchasing the Los Angeles Lakers from the Buss Family.
Johnson played his entire career with the Lakers, but the opportunity to control the other NBA franchise in Los Angeles makes him willing to change his allegiances.
"This is 100 percent Magic's plan," a league official intimately involved in the buying and selling of franchises told Yahoo Sports. A source close to Johnson tells ESPN's Ramona Shelburne that he's had "zero, zero, zero conversations" about buying the Clippers.
