The NBA owners' advisory/finance committee has held its first meeting about Donald Sterling and is committed to ending his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers "as expeditiously as possible."

The 10-member committee, which includes Los Angeles Lakers president Jeanie Buss, held a conference call Thursday to discuss "the process for termination of Donald T. Sterling's ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers," the league says in a statement.

Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million Tuesday for making racist comments. Silver said he also would urge owners to force Sterling to sell.

The committee plans to meet again next week.
