    Report: Sterling deemed mentally unfit


    Sterling was determined to be mentally unfit to make decisions related to the family trust.

    According to USA Today, the Sterling Family Trust owns the team and based on provisions and protocol related to mental capacity, Sterling's wife, Shelly, became the sole power-wielding decision-maker recently. Experts determined Donald Sterling was not capable of making those decisions due to his mental state.
