Sterlings Agree to Sell Clippers

Los Angeles Clippers owners Donald and Shelly Sterling have reportedly agreed to a voluntary sale of the franchise ahead of an NBA vote to force them to sell. CNN reports an agreement between the Sterlings would allow Shelly Sterling to do the negotiations, and she is already speaking to the NBA. The move is a big reversal for Donald Sterling, who hired an antitrust attorney last week to fight the NBA over the potential forced sale. The NBA's Board of Governors is scheduled to meet June 3 to vote on terminating the Sterlings' ownership, which would happen if 23 of 30 owners vote in the affirmative.
