discrimination

ESPN Reports that: Elgin Baylor (former Los Angeles Clippers General Manager) has sued the franchise, the NBA and Donald Sterling (Team Owner) alleging employment discrimination following his dismissal last year, after 22 years with the team.

The lawsuit maintains that Baylor was “discriminated against and unceremoniously released from his position with the team on account of his age and his race” and that he was “grossly underpaid during his tenure with the Clippers, never earning more than $350,000 per year, when compared with the compensation scheme for general managers employed by every other team in the NBA.”

The Clippers attorney said that he could not comment on the specific allegations as he had not seen them, but he added that Baylor had never made any of these claims of unfair treatment before his departure.
