Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer reveals that he is focused on working with coach Doc Rivers in order to take the NBA franchise forward.

Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer has revealed that he is in agreement with coach Doc Rivers on how to take the franchise forward.

Ballmer completed his $2bn (£1.1bn) takeover of the Clippers on Tuesday and has now set about focusing on leading the team forward towards the goal of winning the NBA championship.

"The topic of conversation with Doc earlier was to focus in on what does it take and how can I help support him in achieving our mutual mission and in a pretty intense way continue to improve, be tenacious," said Ballmer, according to The AP.

"If we do all that, good things will come our way."

The club's previous owner, Donald Sterling, originally bought the franchise in 1981 for $12m (£7.1m).
