Former Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer has submitted a winning bid of $2 billion to buy the Los Angles Clippers, reports the Los Angeles Times. According to the Times, Ballmer’s bid beat out Tony Ressler and Bruce Karsh ($1.2 billion) and a group that included David Geffen and executives from the Guggenheim Group ($1.6 billion). The $2 billion sale price would be the second-most ever for a professional sports franchise in North America.  The Los Angeles Dodgers were sold for $2.1 billion in 2012. Ballmer, 58, was the CEO of Microsoft for 14 years and is reportedly worth $20 billion.  He has said he has no intentions of moving the team. The deal will need to be approved by current Clippers owner Donald Sterling and 29 other NBA owners.
