Oprah Winfrey Part of Group Making Bid for LA Clippers

ABC/Lou Rocco(LOS ANGELES) -- A day after the NBA banned Donald Sterling for life, several others are expressing interest in buying his team, the Los Angeles Clippers.

One such person? Oprah Winfrey, who made a bid along with music mogul David Geffen and Oracle Corporation co-founder Larry Ellison.

"Oprah is not interested in running the team," Geffen told ESPN. "She thinks it would be a great thing for an important black American to own [another] franchise."

In a statement, Winfrey said she "is in discussions with David Geffen and Larry Ellison to make a bid for the Los Angeles Clippers should the team become available."

Other celebrities who have expressed interest in buying the team include The View's Whoopi Goldberg, actor Frankie Muniz, rappers Dr. Dre, Diddy and Rick Ross along with boxers Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Oscar De La Hoya.
