NBA Ends Dispute With Sterling’s Wife, Will Vote On Clippers Sale, The NBA’s Board of Governors will vote to approve Steve Ballmer as the Los Angeles Clippers’ owner after the league canceled Tuesday’s hearing to terminate the Sterling family’s ownership of the team – a move that will likely end Donald Sterling’s 33-year reign atop the franchise.

The NBA released a statement Friday evening saying it has resolved its dispute with Shelly Sterling, Donald Sterling’s wife. As part of the agreement, the league said Shelly Sterling and the family trust won’t sue the NBA and agreed “to indemnify the NBA against lawsuits from others, including from Donald Sterling.”

The NBA’s announcement came shortly after Donald Sterling filed a $1 billion lawsuit against the NBA. The indemnification agreement means Shelly Sterling will protect the league from any financial losses it could suffer in a lawsuit by her husband.

Asked if Donald Sterling has any remaining legal avenue to prevent Ballmer from taking ownership, one source involved in the sales process said, “No. He is totally boxed in.”
