LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Los Angeles Clippers plan to raise ticket prices by an average of 15 percent next season. It's the first price hike in six years.
The team said Thursday that more than 9,000 seats at Staples Center will increase by 11 percent or less.
Team President Andy Roeser says the club studied the pricing strategy thoroughly and developed a plan mindful of its impact on Clippers fans.
Season-ticket sales have been at capacity for the entire current season for the first time in Clippers history.
The team was tied atop the Pacific Division with the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, and the Clippers have sold out a long string of home games dating to last season.
