As Suns and Mercury owner Robert Sarver prepares to depart his position as owner of the two teams, four people have reportedly emerged as potential buyers for the Suns’ franchise.
ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne reported that former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, former Disney CEO Bob Iger, ex-Oracle CEO Larry Ellison and Wizards minority owner Laurene Jobs—the widow to former Apple CEO Steve Jobs—are expected to be in the running to become the next owner of the franchise.
Sarver announced earlier Wednesday that he has begun the process of “selling” both Phoenix-based teams. More than a week ago, the NBA suspended Sarver for one year and a $10 million fine from a league investigation into workplace misconduct.
