Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has filed a new lawsuit in his attempt to retain the team and derail a potential $2 billion sale. The lawsuit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court names estranged wife Shelly Sterling, the NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver, saying they committed fraud and violated corporate law in their attempt to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. They include Sterling's assertion that he's the team's sole owner, that his wife deceived him in persuading him to get mental examinations and that the NBA and Ballmer colluded to deprive him of his rights as owner.

Andrew Wiggins will sign his rookie contract with the Cavaliers. A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cavs will sign the No. 1 overall pick to his deal, an agreement that would prevent any potential trade involving the small forward from being completed for 30 days. Wiggins has been linked to a possible trade with Minnesota for All-Star forward Kevin Love. The person familiar with the talks says Wiggins will sign with Cleveland as early as Wednesday.

A person familiar with the trade says the Cavaliers have sent guard Carrick Felix to Utah for three players with non-guaranteed contracts, a deal to give them more assets to go after Kevin Love. The Cavs sent Felix a second-round pick in 2015 and $1 million to the Jazz for guard John Lucas and forwards Malcolm Thomas and Erik Murphy, said the person who spoke Tuesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams are not commenting on the deals. The moves will allow the Cavs to clear $3.3 million in salary cap space.

Brooklyn Nets director Sergei Kushchenko is talking up the chances of the NBA club playing pre-season exhibitions against teams from the Russia-based VTB United League. Kushchenko, who is also the VTB league president, suggests he could use his dual role to set up games. NBA exhibitions against VTB teams are ''possible,'' especially if ''those Brooklyn Nets'' are involved, he told Russia's Itar-TASS news agency. The last NBA team to play a Russian team was the San Antonio Spurs, which beat CSKA Moscow 95-93 last year.

Richard Parsons, the interim CEO of the Los Angeles Clippers, is due to step into the battle of billionaires going on in probate court over the proposed sale of the Los Angeles Clippers. Parsons, once known as the ''Mr. Fixit'' of the business world during his tenure as CEO of Time Warner and Citigroup, will be called as a witness Tuesday to support Shelly Sterling's bid to sell the team for $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Donald Sterling, who owns the team along with estranged wife Shelly, is resisting the sale. Parsons took over leadership of the Clippers in May during the media blitz surrounding the banishment of Sterling from the NBA for making racist comments.

Ray McCallum had a few big moments toward the end of last season for the Sacramento Kings. McCallum scored 29 points and helped key a big Sacramento rally in the final minutes, as the Kings topped the Houston Rockets 77-68 Monday night to win the NBA Summer League championship game. ''It means a lot,'' said McCallum, as he held the tournament MVP trophy. ''I've been trying to put in a lot of hard work this summer.'' The Kings went 6-1 at Las Vegas, and McCallum more than saved his best for last.
