When Shelly Sterling started lining up buyers for the L.A. Clippers, it may have seemed, at least for a minute, that Donald Sterling was ready to walk away from the NBA. In fact, he cleared the way in a letter to the NBA confirming that he authorized his wife to negotiate the sale of the team.

In a news conference Tuesday, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said the league is "doing the right thing" by forcing out LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling. This came only one day after the NBA outlined their charges against Sterling and on the same day Sterling's lawyer demanded three months to respond. "The proceedings and the processes set out in our constitution is something they signed on for when they became owners in the league," said Silver. The commissioner expressed confidence in the NBA's ability to force Sterling into selling the franchise, which he has owned since 1981.
Donald Sterling plans to fight the National Basketball Association's $2.5 million fine and lifetime ban. The scandal started when audio recordings of his racist rants were leaked on the TMZ Sports and Deadspin websites last month.

Sterling contends that the league's punishment was enacted too quickly. The source told CNN the rejection was via a letter sent to the National Basketball Association.
According to Sports Illustrated, the letter says that Sterling has not violated the NBA constitution and the NBA has violated Sterling's right to due process.
