Donald Sterling's lawyer announced the embattled owner of the Los Angeles Clippers has agreed to sell the team to Steve Ballmer for $2 billion and additional benefits.
Attorney Maxwell Blecher said Wednesday that Sterling "has made an agreement with the NBA to resolve all their differences" and approved a deal negotiated by his wife Shelly Sterling to sell the team to Ballmer. The NBA planned to approve the sale pending a vote of the NBA Board of Governors.
Sterling's lawyer also said the deal would resolve all of his client's disputes including a $1 billion breach of contract/antitrust lawsuit filed against the NBA last week.
