Billionaire Antony Ressler is interested in buying the Los Angeles Clippers and is "going to aggressively go after it," according to the New York Post's Claire Atkinson.

Ressler owns Ares Management, a private equity firm, and previously made a bid to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers. He is a "longtime friend" of Sterling, according to the Post.

Other interested parties reportedly include Magic Johnson, Steve Ballmer and Larry Ellison, who could make a bid with Oprah Winfrey and David Geffen.

Sterling has reportedly authorized his wife, Shelly, to negotiate a sale of the team.
