LOS ANGELES (KGO/CNN) - A source familiar with the matter says Los Angeles Clippers co-owner Shelley Sterling met with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer over the weekend to talk about selling the team.

That news follows Friday's reports that Shelley Sterling and her estranged husband Donald agreed that she would try to sell the NBA franchise voluntarily.

The NBA is preparing to vote on whether to force a sale after recordings emerged of Donald Sterling making racist remarks.

Any move by the Sterlings to sell the team would be subject to the league's approval.
