And I wonder what this cost the taxpayers?
Donald Sterling, the L.A. Clipper’s embattled owner, has agreed to sell the basketball team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and is dropping a lawsuit against the NBA, his lawyer said.
Mr. Sterling initially vowed to fight a deal struck last week by his wife, Shelly Sterling, to sell the team to Mr. Ballmer for $2 billion. The NBA in April set out to force him from the league after racist comments he made became public in a recording.
The league’s board of governors must approve any sale.
