Donald Sterling has signed the Los Angeles Clippers over to his wife Shelly, a source close to the team confirmed today to ABC News.
Shelly Sterling, who previously shared ownership of the beleaguered NBA franchise with Donald, is now in talks with the NBA over selling the team, the source said.
The NBA banned Donald Sterling for life from all league events after an audio tape became public that recorded him uttering racist comments to his assistant, V. Stiviano. He told her not to post photos of herself with black people on Instagram or bring them to his basketball games.
