In a strange turn of events, Donald Sterling has decided to meet with Steve Ballmer to discuss the sale of the Clippers. TMZ is reporting that Sterling and Ballmer met today along with Shelly Sterling’s lawyer, Pierce O’Donnell. O’Donnell was the legal representation that Shelly used to broker the sale of the Clippers to Ballmer equaling a total of $2 billion.
According to sources close to the situation, Donald Sterling’s lawyers have advised him that he would lose his court case, and it has caused the eccentric Clippers owner to start to lean towards signing off on the sale to Ballmer. It is reported that Donald Sterling did request the meeting with Ballmer on his own accord and hasn’t agreed to sign the team over. However, it seems that Sterling is leaning to give up his futile battle with his wife, Shelly, and Ballmer.
Whether or not this is true remains to be seen, but as we have seen, anything is possible with the Sterlings.
