Vinny Del Negro Awaits Decision on Future
Three days after the Los Angeles Clippers were eliminated from the first round of the playoffs after losing four straight games to the Memphis Grizzlies, Vinny Del Negro addressed the media as the team’s head coach.
How much longer he will remain in that position, however, is in question — even to him — as he prepares to meet with team owner Donald Sterling at the end of this week.
“Those decisions are out of my hand,” Del Negro said from the Clippers’ training facility. “I’ll meet with Mr. Sterling and we’ll talk things through. We’ll see where they’re at and where I’m at and we’ll move forward. I’m proud of what we’ve done. I’m proud of my staff and how hard they’ve worked and I know the organization is in a much better place today, and that makes me feel proud.”
