According to ESPN, the NBA has been building their legal strategy to try to force Sterling out, and there's a chance that they could have something to work with.
When morals clauses are enacted and result in termination of agreements, including endorsement deals, the courts are often charged with interpreting who was right, but sources with knowledge of the NBA's legal strategy believe that they have enough to force Sterling to sell.
Sterling will most certainly have his best lawyers on the case, so this won't be an easy fight for the NBA.
If, however, they can prove that his actions were in violation of his contract with the team and the league, it could give them some much-needed leverage in their efforts to force him to sell the team.
A more likely scenario would be his estranged wife Shelly taking over the team. She has already taken the reins, and it seems possible that she will remain in control for the foreseeable future.
Some are campaigning for the team to be taken out of Sterling family's hands altogether, but that could be an uphill battle, legally speaking.
