Donald Sterling agrees to sale of Los Angeles Clippers
By Brian Todd
(CNN) — Donald Sterling has agreed to the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, Sterling’s attorney, Maxwell Blecher, told CNN on Wednesday.
Last week, Sterling’s estranged wife, Shelly, agreed to sell the franchise to Ballmer for $2 billion. The Sterlings are co-owners of the team.
Donald Sterling initially indicated he would fight the sale and filed a lawsuit against the National Basketball Association.
But Blecher said Wednesday that Sterling told him he would go along with the sale. The attorney said he thought that Sterling worked out a resolution with the league or with Shelly Sterling.
NBA owners still have to approve the sale to Ballmer.
