Shelly Sterling, co-owner of the Los Angeles Clippers and estranged wife of NBA exiled Donald Sterling, is hoping to sell the franchise, and in a hurry. Sources close to Sterling report that she hopes to make a deal by the end of this week. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has been heavily involved in the selling of the team as Shelly Sterling meets with potential buyers. Interested parties include two separate groups led by former NBA stars Grant Hill and Magic Johnson, ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, businessman Patrick Soon-Shiong, and entertainment mogul David Geffen.
