Removing an old sink

I am fairly new to house repair, but I need to remove an old sink. It has no shut off valves or anything, so I need to cut the pipes and somehow clamp them, but I am not sure how. If anyone could help me I would be very greatful. Thank you!

Since it is "old", I am assuming that you are dealing with galvanized pipe. Shut the water off, remove the old faucet (which will leave you with 1/2" I.P. threads exposed. dope the ends of the pipes and install shut off valves, if you are going to reconnect a sink, or caps, if you are going to abandon the lines.

(If it's not quite THAT old, and you are dealing with copper pipes, same thing, but use 5/8" compression stops (no soldering involved) or solder on caps.
