The NBA has initiated a study against Phoenix Suns and its owner Robert Sarver. The previous day ESPN had published a feature in which several anonymous sources were charged against racism and women s kneading against sarver.

Baxter Holmes of espn spoke with more than 70 people who work for the Suns or did this and gather all this for that feature, which went online on Tuesday. Therein several incidents are described in which sarver is presented as racist and feminine. The level in women s antiquity and racism was completely unacceptable, espn quoted a non-owner of the Suns mentioned by name. By contrast, General Manager James Jones and Team President Jason Rowley defended the main owner. He is not a racist and no sexist, Rowley said.

For this purpose, several sources have been confirmed that the working environment was poisoned under Sarver. The NBA reacted immediately and initiated an investigation.

In the former Suns coach Earl Watson, a former employee of the Suns in public. Watson accuses Sarver, among other things, that this used the N-word to him. Other employees who did not want to be called said that Sarver did this several times.

Watson coach between 2016 and 2017, but was already fired in the season 16/17 but already after three games. The reason for this should have been a dispute between Sarver and Watson s agents Rich Paul. Paul had held himself with Sarver at the contract negotiations for Guard Eric Bledsoe, the Suns owner then presented Watson before choosing to fire the Klutch agent or to give up his coaching job.

In addition, several employees indicated that the Suns prevailed a women s timely climate, with sarver also noticed inappropriate statements. So Sarver Sarver should have suggested that the Suns Strippers should engage. These could then be able to swear by Suns players so that players would have children and stay in the area.
