Shelly and her lawyer Pierce O’Donnell have put the word out … they’d like to make a deal THIS WEEK. We’re also told NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is aware of what she’s doing. O’Donnell would not comment but we’re told Shelly and Silver have an open line of communication.
We’re told there are several other potential buyers in which Shelly is interested, including:
— Grant Hill Group (Hill is a former NBA star who teamed up with investment partners)
— Magic Johnson and the Guggenheim Partners (a financial company based in Chicago)
— Patrick Soon-Shiong (surgeon turned multi-billionaire businessman)
— David Geffen and Larry Ellison
Our sources say Oprah Winfrey is no longer in the running.
Days ago, Sterling gave full control of the team to his wife after he was pressured to sell following racist remarks caught on tape. Shelly is said to be privately negotiating with Commissioner Silver to sell the team on her own terms.
We’ll keep you updated with the latest in the sale of the nearly $1.5 billion franchise.
