Suns Owner Robert Sarver Threatens to Move Team to Vegas or Seattle

Suns Owner Robert Sarver Threatens to Move Team to Vegas or Seattle”

"The question isn't whether Las Vegas or Seattle are realistic options for Robert Sarver to move the Suns", Van Gundy said.

I am a strong proponent, as evidenced by the term sheet I signed last week, that we should renovate the Talking Stick Resort Arena and once again restore it to a world-class facility.

'In addition, it is important for the Phoenix Suns to build a first-class practice facility so the players of the Suns and the Phoenix Mercury can continue to develop.

Brad discusses Robert Sarver and his time with the Phoenix Suns along with the possiblity of the team moving.

'He's so tight he squeaks when he walks, ' she continued.

Fitzgerald, who attended a UA basketball game with Sarver in Tucson last season, said he hopes the Phoenix City Council ultimately approves the Suns' renovation project, after the council postponed Wednesday's scheduled vote on the project.

There is little public appetite these days for spending tax money on sports venues, but the backlash the council is feeling is more about Sarver and his stewardship of the Suns, if you can call it that.

Out of 30 National Basketball Association teams, the Suns now ranks 28th in player payroll and 27th in home attendance.

"Mr. Sarver has done nothing to improve this team in the 14 years he's owned it, ' said Greta Rogers, who was responding to a $150 million proposal to renovate the Suns" arena, ostensibly, to persuade to remain in Phoenix. Rogers criticized Sarver as well as Phoenix's City Council for considering a public funding of the arena renovation. "The question is when is Robert Sarver going to bring an National Basketball Association team to Phoenix".

He wants the taxpayers to pay for renovations to the arena and they aren't having it.

The deal would keep the Suns in Phoenix until 2037 or face a $200 million fine.

In a statement Friday, Suns president Jason Rowley noted that the team has not "engaged in any discussions with Seattle, Las Vegas or any other city for that matter" on a potential relocation. They are the worst team in the National Basketball Association, with a 4-24 record, despite getting Deandre Ayton with the No. 1 pick in the draft.
