The owner spoke to NBC's Los Angeles affiliate at a charity event on Tuesday night as the NBA was finalizing the sale of his team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

Donald Sterling is ready to "move on" and seems to be at peace with the sale of the Clippers, according to remarks the disgraced owner made to NBC's Los Angeles affiliate.

When asked how he felt after the his wife, Shelly, and Steve Ballmer reached a deal for the former Microsoft CEO to buy the team, Sterling said, "I feel fabulous, I feel very good. Everything is just the way it should be, really. It may have worked out differently, but it's good. It's all good."

Donald begrudgingly added that he's "OK" but questioned the state of the NBA and commissioner Adam Silver.

"I'm OK, I'm OK," he said. "Is the NBA OK? I'm not sure about that. Is Adam Silver OK? I'm sure he's OK."

Prompted as to whether he would move on, Sterling repeated that he was going to "move on."

Ballmer's purchase still has to be approved by the NBA, and Sterling has filed a $1 billion lawsuit against the league over what the complaint referred to as a "forced sale" of the team.

Sterling spoke to NBC4's Fred Roggin at a dinner in downtown L.A. for nonprofit homeless organization Shelter Partnerships.
