The Clippers stopped paying Dunleavy immediately after firing him in March 2010. At the time, he was in the fourth year of a five-year, $22 million contract. He was owed $6.75 million.
The Arbirtration and Mediation Services in Santa Monica heard the case two months ago. Legal representatives for the Clippers and Dunleavy received the decision Friday.

Clippers general counsel Robert Platt issued a statement through the team, saying: "We do not agree with the arbitrator's decision. We intend to review the decision carefully and explore the team's various options."
