Phoenix Suns Owner Threatens to Move Team to Las Vegas, Seattle

Van Gundy was talking on ESPN's "The Jump" on Thursday about Sarver's threat to move the Suns to Las Vegas or Seattle.

Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver might be soon making calls to see if Las Vegas is interested in being the new home of his National Basketball Association franchise. "I'm 100% committed, and have been for the past four years, to find a solution to keep them in Downtown Phoenix, where they belong". I am a strong proponent, as evidenced by the term sheet that 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. Once it became clear that the proposal wasn't going to pass, Sarver reportedly responded by threatening to relocate the Suns if the Phoenix city council didn't approve the vote (he has since denied making that threat).

Sarver "is so tight he squeaks when he walks".

The vote for renovation has been postponed to January 23 and the residents of Phoenix can attend five public meetings to discuss the project.

There's no longer a Pete Davidson account on Instagram and TMZ is reporting that Davidson posted a disturbing and suicidal message earlier today.

The deal would revamp the almost 30-year-old arena, the oldest in the National Basketball Association that is not now being renovated.

Sarver acquired the franchise in 2004 for $401 million. However, there has been a growing uncertainty surrounding a proposed renovation to the Talking Stick Resort Arena. "The question is when is Robert Sarver going to bring an National Basketball Association team to Phoenix".

Fitzgerald is close to Suns owner Robert Sarver, who has been hit with backlash this week after a later-corrected report suggested he threatened to take the Suns away from downtown and possibly out of the state. Phoenix would pay $150 million toward the renovations, and the Suns would pay $80 million.

Jared Dudley, who has played seven seasons with Phoenix in two different stints, says the Suns have the worst practice facilities in the National Basketball Association.
