Phoenix Sons owner Robert Sarwar has come under fire for alleged racism, sexism and sexual harassment allegations.
Things are about to get ugly in Phoenix.
On Friday, NBA insider Jordan Schultz dismissed serious allegations against Suns owner Robert Sarver.
“The NBA is preparing a massive story accusing #Suns owner Robert Sarver of racism, sexism and sexual assault in a series of events, sources say,” says Schultz tweeted. “With sufficient evidence to support such claims, there is a real chance that the league will forcibly remove Sarwar.”
That said report hasn’t dropped yet, but its content will certainly be prominent if it could threaten Server’s ownership of the team.
Robert Sarwar could be fired from Sons owner after allegations
The idea of removing an owner has been a priority in the NBA lately. Clippers owner Donald Sterling was banned from the league after being caught on tape making racist remarks. That team was eventually sold to Steve Ballmer for $2 billion.
The Sons Is Almost a Multi-Billion Dollar Franchise According to Beat Writer Ivan Sidry. Sever bought the team in 2004 for $401 million, and Forbes now values them at $1.8 billion.
Obviously these are the early stages of this discussion. The allegations against Sarwar are not public or even confirmed to be genuine. If they come down, the brawl could rock the NBA.
In the meantime, the team will have to navigate these uncertain waters as Chris Paul and company look to another deep playoff run.
Phoenix is in Los Angeles to face the Lakers on Friday night.
