The Cleveland Cavaliers majority owner Dan Gilbert released a statement late Monday night addressing the alleged comments made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

The statement reads as follows:

"It is shocking that anyone could hold the kind of offensive and feeble minded views that are being attributed allegedly to the Clippers owner, Donald Sterling. The diverse staff members of the Cleveland Cavaliers franchise are unified in encouraging Commissioner Silver and the NBA to respond with swift and appropriate action consistent with a strong zero tolerance approach to this type of reprehensible behavior."

The NBA is expected to hold a news conference Tuesday on the Donald Sterling investigation.
