by Max Rappaport Writer

The following is a statement from Philadelphia 76ers Managing Owner Josh Harris, in advance of NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s press conference tomorrow regarding the comments attributed to Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

“Without question, discrimination in any form is unacceptable and has no place in the National Basketball Association or anywhere else in society. The comments were hurtful and outrageous, and in no way reflect the values and beliefs of myself, our ownership group or the Philadelphia 76ers organization.

I am confident that Commissioner Silver will undertake a thorough and thoughtful investigation into the matter.”
