Phoenix Suns and Mercury owner Robert Sarver, pictured in 2019, was suspended last week by the NBA and fined $10 million after an investigation found that he had engaged in what the league called "workplace misconduct and organizational deficiencies." On Wednesday, Sarver announced he plans to sell the teams.

Robert Sarver, who owns 35% of the franchises, says he’s looking for buyers after he was suspended from the NBA for abusive behavior. His decision stemmed from the current “unforgiving climate.”
