Donald Sterling has given up his fight against the NBA.

Sterling has dropped his $1 billion lawsuit against the NBA and agreed to sign off on the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, according to a statement released Wednesday to NBC News by one of Sterling's attorneys.

The statement from attorney Bobby Samini says the Sterlings have agreed to sell to Ballmer for $2 billion "and various additional benefits."

"All disputes and outstanding issues have been resolved," Samini says.

Sterling's estranged wife and co-owner, Shelly, has agreed to the sale last week and the NBA approved it on Friday.

The league banned Donald Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million last month over secretly taped racist comments and said it would encourage the league's other owners to force him to sell the team he bought in 1981.
