Shelly Sterling brokered a deal with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to sell the Los Angeles Clippers for what would be a record $2 billion if the NBA’s owners approve it.

The terms allow her to remain close to the organization by allowing for up to 10 percent of the team — or $200 million — to be spun off into a charitable foundation that she essentially would run. Under terms detailed in a court filing Wednesday, Sterling also would retain the following perks:

* 10 tickets in Sections 101 or 111 for all Clippers games in Los Angeles.

* 2 courtside tickets for all Clippers games in Los Angeles.

* 6 parking spots in Lot C for each game

* 12 VIP passes including access to Lexus Club, Arena Club or Chairman’s Lounge and media room or equivalent, for each Staples game.

* 3 championship rings following any Clippers title

* Titles of ”Owner Emeritus” and ”Clippers’ Number 1 Fan” for the rest of her life.
