The Clippers could be on the move.

And in the process, supplementing the newest Los Angeles entertainment and sports hub and the future home of the Rams and Chargers.

According to multiple sources, the Clippers and the city of Inglewood are closing in on entering an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement (ENA) on 22 acres of land between Prairie and Yukon Avenue south of Century Boulevard.

Staples Center is already out dated, it needs major improvements. You figure any arena built by Ballmer will have cutting edge technology, making Staples look like a dinosaur.

Why do the Dodgers need a new facility? Dodger Stadium is still a great place for baseball.

he should just take them to Seattle TBH but I guess Inglewood is will do.

Like VLF said though, that arena is going to poop all over Staples. Hopefully at some point AEG invest a few hundred million to make it state of the art.

Writers constantly complain about the crappy wifi there. They need a technology upgrade.

Dodgers aren't moving anywhere, especially not Inglewood.
The only rumblings I've heard is them moving to downtown LA in the past, and right now there is no vacant plots of land there.
Also they just put in millions of dollars in improvements, they won't abandon that site so soon.

I don't see Angels moving anytime soon either. Their owner said they are staying put until 2029? I don't see the Ducks leaving either.

Across the street from the new football stadium so it won't affect that project.

The building itself is structurally fine.
If you mean by the technology to connect everyone to the internet and latest technology like 4k screens and jumbotrons, its definitely showing its age on that end. However, I don't think they need to demolish an 18 year old building to do that.
