NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says he is hopeful that the proposed 2 billion USD sale of the LA Clippers will be completed before next season begins. But he could not guarantee that will happen because the deal is currently held up in court. Sterling's wife Shelly has agreed to sell the team to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. But Donald Sterling is challenging Shelly's right to make that deal, and delays have pushed closing arguments back to July the 28th. Silver says the process is on hold until that case has been resolved.
