Steve Ballmer Rejects $60M Annual TV Deal To Start Streaming Option

Aug 28, 2015 11:45 PM

Steve Ballmer has turned down a $60 million-per-year offer for local television rights and instead plans to start his own streaming network.

Ballmer would be the first owner of a major United States' sports team to deliver games to consumers via a Web-based service.

The Los Angeles Clippers are currently aired to approximately five million Los Angeles-area homes through Fox Sports' Prime Ticket.

Prime Ticket currently pays the team a rights fee of $25 million a year — and offered a 140 percent increase, to $60 million.

“Steve Ballmer has not renewed his deal with Fox,” said one source close to the situation. “He’s looking at a [digital] subscription channel.”

NBA Fines Clippers $250,000 For Probited Endorsement Offer To DeAndre Jordan

Aug 25, 2015 2:49 PM

The NBA has fined the Los Angeles Clippers $250,000 for violating NBA rules prohibiting teams from offering players unauthorized business or investment opportunities.

The violation involved a presentation made by the Clippers to DeAndre Jordan on July 2 that improperly included a potential third-party endorsement opportunity for the player. While the NBA’s investigation ultimately concluded that the presentation of this opportunity had no impact on Jordan’s decision to re-sign with the Clippers, the team’s conduct nevertheless violated the league’s anti-circumvention rules.

The NBA’s anti-circumvention rules prohibit teams from, among other things, providing or arranging for others to provide any form of compensation to a player unless such compensation is included in a player contract or otherwise expressly permitted under the CBA.

Donald Sterling Files For Divorce

Aug 6, 2015 1:30 AM

Donald Sterling has filed for divorce from Shelly Sterling.

Sterling, 81, cited irreconcilable differences in paperwork submitted to the Los Angeles Superior Court, attorney Bobby Samini said. That paperwork was initially rejected by the court as incomplete, but it was corrected and resubmitted. It lists their date of separation as Aug. 1, 2012.


Sterling also filed a petition in probate court Wednesday for an accounting and distribution of assets related to the $2 billion sale of the Clippers to Steve Ballmer, claiming he had a right to half of the community property, according to the court documents.


Donald Sterling is suing his wife and the NBA in federal court over the sale of the team. Shelly Sterling negotiated the deal with Ballmer after doctors found Donald Sterling incompetent to handle his business affairs.
