Steve Ballmer to buy LA Clippers

  • The LA Times reports that Shelly Sterling has picked Steve Ballmer over other contenders and the man is now expected to acquire the Clippers.

    Media reports, however, also indicate that the deal hasn't been finalized and it's not clear if Donald Sterling will continue fighting for the team. 

    Ballmer is offering to pay $2 billion for the Clippers and the the LA Times notes that if accepted, this will be the second-highest amount ever paid for a team in the country. Los Angles Dodgers was acquired for $2.1 billion in 2012.
