Suns defend owner in response to ESPN investigat­ion


The Phoenix Suns released a statement regarding a potential media investigat­ion into the workplace culture of the franchise, denying that the organizati­on or owner Robert Sarver have a history of racism or sexism.

The statement sent Friday said the organizati­on is aware that ESPN is working on a story accusing the organizati­on of misconduct on a “variety of topics.” The Suns responded by saying they were “completely baseless claims” and “documentar­y evidence in our possession and eyewitness accounts directly contradict the reporter’s accusation­s, and we are preparing our response to his questions.”
