The Los Angeles Lakers will soon be the lone NBA team playing in the STAPLES Center.

In 1999, the L.A. Clippers joined the Lakers to play its games in the same venue, but as new owner Steve Ballmer seeks a fresh identity for the team, a new arena is in the works.

The Clippers had previously announced it would move to Inglewood, Calif. to build an arena exclusively for the franchise, and that process moved one step closer.

The Clippers announced a 23-year naming rights deal with Intuit to call the arena the Intuit Dome. New graphics show what the area will look like inside and outside of the dome, via Sports Business Journal:

The Clippers plan to start playing games in the Intuit Dome in the 2024-25 season.
