Sterling Trial Pushes Back Sale Deadlines

((HT: KABC-TV/LA Times, Panzer-Cook))

The end result of Shelly Sterling returning to the stand in the Donald Sterling competency hearing means that the sale completion of the Los Angeles Clippers is pushed back and won't meet the NBA deadlines.

What that means, really, is anyone's guess...

Does it affect the overall sale...? How patient will the league be over time if this drags on...? Will players be as patient as the league may or may not be if this drags out all the way to next season...?

Shelly Sterling described her husband's emotions in and around the time of the sale of the team to Steve Ballmer. Pierce O'Donnell, Shelly's lawyer, trumpeted his client's cause after the hearing.


Here's the latest from outside the courtroom

Judge Michael Levanas said the trial is taking next week off to let Donald Sterling's lawyer, Max Blecher, go on a planned vacation. Closing arguments are scheduled for July 28.
