Billionaire Antony Ressler is interested in buying the Los Angeles Clippers and is "going to aggressively go after it," according to the New York Post's Claire Atkinson.

Ressler owns Ares Management, a private equity firm, and previously made a bid to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers. He is a "longtime friend" of Sterling, according to the Post.
