Attorney: Donald Sterling agrees to sell Clippers to Steve Ballmer, drop NBA lawsuit
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.
