Steve Ballmer

Ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is reportedly in talks with the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers NBA team. Shelly Sterling, who recently bought the team from husband Donald Sterling, met with Ballmer over the weekend to engage in talks of selling the professional team. Mrs Sterling has hesitated in selling out, but with issues staining the team, it would make sense for a deal to be arranged.

According to TMZ, Ballmer has indicated he plans to purchase the Clippers. We'll have to wait and see who will be named as the new owner(s) of the basketball team. It's not known what would happen to the team should a Ballmer buyout take place, but the businessman has previously stated he has no plans to move the team from Los Angeles now that he has more time. Fans, what are your thoughts?
