Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer Buys LA Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers have been sold to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, in a deal which is worth $2 billion. Ballmer said in a statement that he will not be moving the Clippers from Los Angeles. Ballmer has been looking to buy an NBA team for awhile, and even had made an offer for the Sacramento Kings. The move came after the NBA banned Clippers owner Donald Sterling from the league for life for racist comments captured and released on tape. Ballmer has been spending a lot of time in Los Angeles recently, having also been a keynote speaker at USC's Marshall School a couple of weeks ago.
