SI.com has learned that Donald Sterling has hired prominent antitrust litigator Maxwell Blecher, who has written a letter to NBA executive vice president and general counsel Rick Buchanan threatening to sue the NBA.
The letter, sources tells SI.com, claims that Sterling has done nothing wrong and that "no punishment is warranted" for Sterling.
Blecher reportedly is arguing that Sterling has not violated the NBA's constitution, and that the league denied Sterling "due process rights."
