The NBA’s ban of David Sterling’s involvement in the Los Angeles Clippers shocked the nation. Everyone knew it was a strong possibility to happen, but to see commissioner Adam Silver actually go through with it is another thing entirely. There are several billionaires who have reportedly stepped forward to purchase the team when the time comes. Along with that, there are at least five celebrities who want to buy the Clippers.

Magic Johnson, one of the men Sterling insulted during his racist tirade, is the most likely candidate to buy the team. He already owns a piece of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and his billionaire partners are very interested in the idea of owning more than one professional sports team in Southern California. It would be a surprise if Johnson weren’t a part of the bidding war for the Clippers in the near future.

Frankie Muniz, who is of Malcolm in the Middle fame, doesn’t have the funds to buy the Clippers on his own. However, that won’t stop him from pursuing his life-long dream of owning the team. Muniz tweeted the following on Tuesday:

“I am buying the Los Angeles Clippers.”

The professional boxer makes millions of dollars every time he steps in the ring. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is also notorious for spending his money in large amounts.

“I got to get a solid percentage. But do we want to buy the Clippers? Yes we do. We’re very, very interested in buying the Clippers,” Mayweather said in a recent interview with Yahoo.

Rick Ross was quick to take to Twitter immediately after the announcement of Sterling’s ban to make an announcement of his own. The recording artist doesn’t have enough money to buy the organization by himself, which is why he made a shout out to Wingstop CEO Charlie Morrison on the social media platform.

“I'd be interested investing in @LAclippers !!!! Make It #WingstopArena @WingstopCEO Lets Goooo !!!”

Another musical artist interested in owning the Clippers is none other than Sean "P. Diddy" Combs. The rapper/producer is a well-known fan of the New York Knicks, but that won’t stop him from making an intelligent financial investment.

“I will always be a Knicks fan, but I am a business man. #DiddyBuyTheClippers #NameYourPrice,” he tweeted.
