    Here's How Much Every NBA Team Is Worth Based On The Clippers' $2 Billion Price Tag

    BusinessInsiderDOTcom

    Instead of $1.4 billion, the New York Knicks are suddenly worth closer to $5 billion, the Lakers may be worth $4.7 billion, and the average team would be worth $2.2 billion instead of $634 million.

    Of course, this is the extreme case and it is quite possible Ballmer overpaid just because he desperately wanted to own a team.

    However, there are several reasons to believe the potential value of the franchise is much greater than the current value of $575 million, including a new television contract in the next few years and a current operating income ($15.0 million in 2013) that is actually below average ($23.7 million) despite being in the huge Los Angeles market.
