It appears the Donald Sterling saga has taken yet another twist.
According to ESPN, the embattled owner of the Los Angeles Clippers plans to sue the National Basketball Association for $1 billion.
“The [termination] charges in the lawsuit are an invasion of his constitutional rights, violation of anti-trust laws, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract,” attorney Max Blecher told Shelburne.
Blecher said the suit would be filed Friday afternoon and has nothing to do with a reported $2 billion sale of the team.
Blecher also said Sterling is weighing the option of a potential lawsuit against his wife.
The NBA is taking steps to force Sterling to sell the team after a secretly recording of him making racist statements was leaked to the press.
