(CNN) - The NBA has announced that ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is officially the new owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.

The league said a California court issued an order on Tuesday confirming the authority of Shelly Sterling to sell the team.

Shelly Sterling was the sole trustee after her husband, Donald, was found mentally incapacitated.

Donald Sterling was caught on an audio recording making racist comments to a female companion.

The negotiated $2 billion sale price is a record for an NBA team.
