Donald Sterling He's Just Over It Dropping $1 Billion Suit Against NBA

Breaking News
Donald Sterling Dropping NBA LawsuitDonald Sterling's decided to go quietly after all -- he's reportedly in the process of dropping that $1 BILLION lawsuit against the NBA for forcing him to sell the L.A. Clippers.

Sterling had claimed in the lawsuit -- filed last week -- the NBA booted him based on an illegal recording that painted him as a racist. He was also fighting the $2.5 million fine the league levied against him.

But today his attorney told The Hollywood Reporter ... Sterling is letting it all go, and the suit would be dropped within a couple days. 

It's unclear what changed Sterling's mind -- or if there was any sort of financial settlement with the NBA -- but the decision clears the way for the league to approve Steve Ballmer's $2 billion purchase of the Clippers. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
