Dental plans for Clippers players and coaches will become part of the team’s new Jersey plan, according to people familiar with the matter.
New Jersey, which is about 90 miles north of Los Angeles, has been in talks with the NBA about the team, which has not been sold to a team in the past 10 years, said a person familiar with talks.
The league and teams are still exploring options to add the New Jersey franchise to the league and to build an arena, the person said.
New York, which will soon be hosting a summer tournament, is considering a franchise, but that could take some time.
The NBA has not announced whether it plans to bring a franchise to Los Angeles.
The New Jersey plan is aimed at increasing the number of people who live in the state.
It includes plans to add new health centers, schools, parks and recreation facilities.
The plan also would include financial assistance for those with low incomes.
Dental plans are already available for Clippers and New York Knicks players, who are paid $75,000 for each game.
New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday has said he’s considering moving to New Jersey.
