Donald Sterling to Drop Lawsuit Against NBA

Donald Sterling is dropping his $1 billion lawsuit against the NBA and will not fight his wife Shelly’s planned sale of the Clippers to Steve Ballmer for $2 billion.

Sterling’s attorney, Max Blecher, confirmed that the suit would be dropped.

On Friday, Sterling filed an antitrust suit against the NBA, challenging the grounds on which they banned him from the league. On Tuesday, he told KNBC that he was ready to “move on” and said, “Everything is just the way it should be, really. It may have worked out differently, but it’s good. It’s all good.”

Sterling has owned the Clippers since 1981.

The sale still needs to be approved by the NBA Board of Governors.
