LOS ANGELES — Former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling says he could have gotten more than the record $2 billion that Steven Ballmer paid to buy the team but circumstances of the sale reduced the price.

The Los Angeles Times says the claim is contained in an amended complaint to Sterling's federal lawsuit against the NBA.

The complaint also adds Sterling's wife to the suit, which seeks more than $600 million.

Rochelle Sterling's attorney Stephen Smith calls the filing "desperate and frivolous."

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling last year after he was recorded making racist comments.

Sterling's suit says his wife conspired with Silver. It also names two doctors who concluded that Sterling had Alzheimer's disease, leading Rochelle Sterling to remove him from a trust that owned the Clippers.
