If they want to stay in SoCal I have 2 ideas for them:
1) Anaheim/somewhere else in the OC though don't know if Fullerton, Long Beach, or Santa Ana have the arena/space capacity to build a stadium. Clips would be fine at the Pond (Honda Center where the Ducks play).
2) San Diego.

I think the better move for them if Ballmer is serious about them moving out of Staples Center is to relocate (Seattle, or Kansas City the 2 logical choices). Even in the SoCal market, the Lakers will still be #1 in town, but by relocating they can create their own niche in whatever city they move too.

Just my 2 cents.

San Diego is not interested in another "Chargers." They already have the foundering Padres. A reminder that after the Cavaliers won in 2016, San Diego currently has the biggest sports drought in America. The city economy certainly doesn't need a sports team, but if they invite another team (NBA, NFL or etc), they want an organization that's able to field a championship.
