NBA Owners Can NOT Force Donald Sterling to Sell Team ... Sources Say

The NBA owners can NOT band together to force Donald Sterling to sell the Los Angeles Clippers ... multiple well-connected league sources tell TMZ Sports.
We're told ... the NBA has the power to fine and suspend Sterling for the racist comments he made during a conversation posted on TMZSports.com, but neither the owners nor the league can force a sale.
Bottom line -- it seems if Sterling is going to leave the NBA for good, it's going to have to be his decision.
