NBPA executive director calls for lifetime ban on Suns owner Robert Sarver

Sep 17, 2022

Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver was suspended for one year and fined $10 million by the NBA on Tuesday after an investigation into alleged racist and misogynistic remarks.

But Tamika Tremaglio, executive director of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA), wants much more of a punishment than that.

"We are absolutely calling for [a lifetime ban]," Tremaglio said in an interview on ESPN's "NBA Today." "We do not want him to be in a position where he is managing or engaging with individuals who are engaging with our players or the players themselves. We are absolutely clear from the findings that are in the report that we do not want him to be in that position."
