Sterling negotiating sale of Clippers
Los Angeles — Shelly Sterling, wife of Los Angeles Clippers co-owner Donald Sterling, is negotiating the sale of the Clippers with the NBA, according to a source familiar with the situation.
There is an agreement between the two Sterlings for her to negotiate a voluntary sale, and there have been discussions between the NBA and Shelly Sterling, according to the source.
The NBA has banned Donald Sterling for life, and the league is preparing a vote by other team owners that would force the couple, which own the team, to sell the franchise.
The ban and pending vote , along a $2.5 million fine against Donald Sterling, arise from remarks the billionaire made that were caught on tape.
