A lawyer for the Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling said Friday that reports Sterling is mentally incompetent are “absurd.”
The league has pressured Donald Sterling to sell since a recording of him making racist comments surfaced last month. The NBA has already banned Sterling for life, and a meeting of the NBA Board of Governors to determine whether to end his ownership is scheduled for Tuesday.
His lawyer, Maxwell Blecher, told the Los Angeles Timesthat he wasn’t sure if Donald Sterling will challenge the sale in court.
“That decision hasn’t been made,” he told the Times.
The back and forth came amid reports that Sterling is planning a $1 billion lawsuit against the NBA, though the status of talks between the owner and the league were unclear as of late Friday.
