(Los Angeles, CA) -- LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling is reportedly handing control of the team to his wife. TMZ is citing sources as saying that Sterling made the move because he saw that the NBA was going to force him to give up the team. He has already been given a lifetime ban from the NBA due to a recording of him making racist statements to a female friend. TMZ also reports that Shelly Sterling is now handling negotiations to sell the team.
