The NBA regime better hope they don't have anything to hide because embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is reportedly hiring a private investigator to look for dirt on all them.

According to the Associated Press, Sterling, who is suing the NBA for $1 billion after Sterling was heard making racist remarks to alleged mistress V. Stiviano, has reportedly sought the assistance of four private investigation firms to look into the past of 29 NBA owners and the former and current commissioners.

Over the next 30 days, investigators will comb through the league's finances, allegations of previous discriminatory conduct and compensation to past Commissioner David Stern and current Commissioner Adam Silver, AP reports.

Investigators, who were reportedly given a six-figure budget, will also look into whether any of the owners have made "off-color jokes or racist or sexist remarks."  

An unnamed source told the news site that "the gloves are off, as they say. He realized these guys will literally go to any low to get this sold."

"Even if it gets [him] nothing other than exposing all these guys and shaking up the league and seeing a change in the leadership of the league, it'll be worth it to him."
