Baylor needs docs to support lawsuit
LOS ANGELES -- A judge says former Los Angeles Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor must provide the Clippers with documents that supports his discrimination lawsuit against the team.
A Los Angeles judge on Friday gave Baylor's attorneys two weeks to hand over the information.
The 75-year-old Hall of Famer was general manager of the Clippers for 22 years before leaving last fall.
The team said he resigned, but Baylor, who's black, claimed he was forced out by age and racial discrimination.
In February, he sued the team, owner Donald Sterling and the NBA.
Baylor, considered one of basketball's greatest players, was with the Los Angeles Lakers for 14 years and briefly coached the New Orleans Jazz. He joined the Clippers in 1986.
