It’s being reported that Donald Sterling is no longer in control of his NBA team, the Los Angeles Clippers. TMZ is reporting that his ex wife, Shelley Sterling has been given control of the team, and is rumored to be in negotiations with the NBA to sell the team.
The move was made to give the Sterling’s more control in negotiating the best terms for them in any sale. If Donald Sterling had maintained control himself, the NBA would have forced a sale of the Clippers, at whatever terms suited them.
All in all, a win-win situation for Sterling, and the NBA. The sooner this deal is done, the better for all concerned. Including the fans of the Clippers, and the NBA.
