Published June 4, 1996
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).
