Suns deny report of potential racism, sexism, harassment case vs. Robert Sarver

According to ESPN’s Jordan Schultz, the NBA is planning to unveil an in-depth case accusing Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver of racism, sexism and sexual harassment in a series of incidents. If the claims are proven to be true, the NBA could have rightful cause to forcibly remove Sarver from his ownership post in Phoenix.

The Suns released a statement denying the report of the potential case.

This is a potentially massive development, one that would send shockwaves throughout the Valley and the entire Association. Sarver purchased the Suns for a then-record-breaking $401 million in 2004. Currently, the Suns’ franchise valuation is $1.8 billion, according to a recent report from Forbes.

Over the years, Sarver has been put under fire due to perceived financial shortcomings, such as not re-signing critical 7-Seconds-or-Less contributor Joe Johnson to a new long-term contract. After allowing Johnson to hit restricted free agency, he signed a max offer sheet with the Atlanta Hawks and the Suns did not match. Now, Phoenix hopes a similar situation doesn’t arise after not inking 2018 No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton to a rookie-scale max extension.

When canvassing through the Suns’ current ownership situation, only one name is mentioned as holding a partial stake: Arizona Cardinals legend Larry Fitzgerald. If something were to occur, Fitzgerald could temporarily step into a bigger role for Phoenix. The Suns will reportedly be addressing this report soon.

No other reporters have confirmed or reported on the matter at this time.
