Former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling still plans to sue the NBA, according to a statement released by his attorney Monday.
“The action taken by [NBA Commissioner] Adam Silver and the NBA constitutes a violation of my rights and fly in the face of the freedoms that are afforded to all Americans,” Sterling said through attorney Bobby Samini. “I have decided that I must fight to protect my rights. While my position may not be popular, I believe that my rights to privacy and the preservation of my rights to due process should not be trampled.”
His wife, Shelly, may also go to court in an attempt to clarify her right to control the team and its sale to Steve Ballmer for $2 billion.
