LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Talk show host turned entertainment mogul Oprah Winfrey is in talks with billionaire media executive David Geffen and Oracle Corp chief executive Larry Ellison to make a bid to buy the Los Angeles Clippers should the team become available, her spokesman said on Wednesday.

The statement from Winfrey came a day after the National Basketball Association imposed a lifetime ban against Clippers owner Donald Sterling for racist remarks attributed to him and moved to force him to sell his team.
