The Deal is off again. LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling said he does not want to sell the team.

Not only did Sterling decide he won't sell the team, he's going ahead with a $1 billion lawsuit against the NBA.

Clippers owner Donald Sterling seems to have changed his mind about this sale multiple times.

In a just released statement Sterling said "from the onset I did not want to sell the Los Angeles Clippers."

The $2 billion sale was negotiated by Shelly Sterling, Donald's wife.

Donald Sterling has been the center of a controversy since racist remarks he made to a girlfriend were recorded and made public.

Those comments caused the NBA to attempt to oust Sterling as the owner of the clippers.

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer offered to pay the $2 billion to purchase the team.

Initially Donald Sterling indicated he would fight that sale.

Last week his attorney said he supported the idea of selling the team to Ballmer.

The newest statement from Sterling indicates the fight is back on. Not only will Sterling fight the sale of his team he filed a $1 billion lawsuit against the NBA for its decision to ban him for life and its attempt to force him to sell the franchise.
