The Los Angeles Clippers officially have a new owner. The NBA announces Ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is officially the new owner of the Clippers.

The league said a California court issued an order today, confirming the authority of Shelly Sterling to sell the team for $2 billion. Shelly Sterling was the sole trustee after her husband, Donald Sterling, was found mentally incapacitated.

Donald Sterling was banned for life from the NBA in April after an audio recording surfaced of him making racist remarks.
