Despite some lawsuits against their efforts, the Los Angeles Clippers are confident that they will be playing in a new arena starting in 2024. The Clippers have identified a location in Inglewood, near the NFL stadium that the Rams and Chargers will share, and owner Steve Ballmer has been touring venues around the country to borrow successful architectural ideas.

One certainty, Ballmer told attendees at the World Congress of Sports, is that the arena will not be home for a hockey team, which allows it to be constructed in a way that puts fans closer to the court.

"I like Utah quite a bit," Ballmer said of Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City. "Utah is very condensed, very noisy. They've just done a remodel to give them very nice luxury spaces."

Another reason why Ballmer wants the Clippers to have their own arena is scheduling. At Staples Center, the Clippers are third in the pecking order behind the Lakers and Kings for scheduling preferences. Check out the video above for more of Ballmer's thoughts regarding a new home for the Clippers.
