New L.A. Clippers Owner Announced

cnn la clippers(CNN) — According to its website, the NBA has announced that ex-Microsoft CEO Stave Ballmer is officially the new owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.

The league said a California court issued an order on Tuesday confirming the authority of Shelly Sterling to sell the team. Shelly Sterling was the sole trustee after her husband, Donald, was found mentally incapacitated.

The negotiated $2 billion sale price is a record for an NBA team. Donald Sterling was banned for life from the NBA in April after an audio recording surfaced of Sterling making racist remarks.
