The NBA apparently is ready to rid the league of Donald Sterling‘s presence as quickly as possible.
According to USA Today, the league’s Board of Governors is expected to approve the sale of the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer soon after the transaction from Shelly Sterling to Ballmer is complete.
Sterling and Ballmer have a target date of Aug. 15 to complete the deal with hopes that Ballmer can take control of the Clippers within the next few weeks.
Judge Michael Levanas ruled earlier this week that Sterling had the right to sell the Clippers to Ballmer after the two sides came to an agreement in May. Donald Sterling has until the sale is complete to file objections.
