Clippers owner Donald Sterling has reportedly authorized his wife Shelly to sell the team, in an attempt to get the best possible deal out of the sale.
Shelly Sterling, who previously argued that she should be allowed to keep the Clippers, agreed to sell the team voluntarily -- her husband has been banned from the NBA, and is in the process of terminating his ownership in the team.
Potential buyers have vocalized interest in the team. In response to reports about Donald Sterling surrendering controlling ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers, NBA spokesman Mike Bass stated: “We continue to follow the process set forth in the NBA Constitution regarding termination of the current ownership interests in the Los Angeles Clippers and are proceeding toward a hearing on this matter on June 3.”
Who should sell the Clippers, and what kinds of logistical planning should precede a sale? What’s next for the team and for the Sterlings?
