LA Clippers coach says he'll QUIT if Donald Sterling doesn't sell as team's disgraced owner sues his wife and NBA commissioner

Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers has said he'll resign if Donald Sterling remains owner, it was revealed in court this week during a legal battle over who should take ownership of the team.

Clippers owner Donald Sterling has filed a new lawsuit in his attempt to retain the team and derail a potential $2 billion sale.

The lawsuit filed on Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court names estranged wife Shelly Sterling, the NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver, saying they committed fraud and violated corporate law in their attempt to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

 

 

The suit lists many arguments already being heard in a probate court trial on the legality of the Ballmer deal.

They include Sterling's assertion that he's the team's sole owner, that his wife deceived him in persuading him to get mental examinations and that the NBA and Ballmer colluded to deprive him of his rights as owner.

Attorneys for the defendants couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
