STERLING ENDS LEASE AT CLIP JOINT, LOOKS TO JUMP IN THE POND

     The Clippers terminated their lease at L.A. Sports Arena
yesterday and "have penciled in a potential schedule" for '96-97
at The Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, according to the ORANGE COUNTY
REGISTER.  The NBA, Clippers and Ogden Entertainment Services
have set aside 50 open dates for 41 games at The Pond, as
required by the NBA.  The Anaheim City Council will meet tonight
to get an update on financial incentives being sought from the
city to help bring the team to Anaheim.  Pond GM Brad Mayne said
they are "closer than we've ever been.  But we don't have a
formal agreement at this point" (Barbara Kinglsey, ORANGE COUNTY
REGISTER, 6/4).
