ESPN details allegations of Suns owner Robert Sarver’s racism, sexism

From Arizona Sports

An ESPN feature story alleging Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver of racism and sexist behavior, as well as fostering a “toxic” workplace environment, was published on Thursday.

More than 70 former and current Suns employees were interviewed for the story by Baxter Holmes. Among those on the record are former head coach Earl Watson, assistant coach Corliss Williamson and player Taylor Griffin, all of whom are Black.

ESPN reports that those in the human resources department were fearful of taking complaints on the record and believed being honest on surveys deployed to staffers would lead to retaliation if they were answered with honesty.
