The NBA has named Richard Parsons, the former chairman of Citigroup and the former CEO of Time Warner, the CEO of the Los Angeles Clippers, the league announced Friday.

As a result of the Donald Sterling scandal, the league announced last Saturday that it would appoint a CEO to "supervise the team's operations." On Tuesday, Clippers president Andy Roeser was placed on an indefinite leave of absence so as to not complicate things for the new CEO.
