Phoenix Suns' owner Robert Sarver 'showed employees pics of bikini-clad wife', toxic workplace report claims

AMID multiple allegations of enabling a toxic work environment, more reports are coming out about Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver.

Sarver reportedly spread around a photo of his wife, Penny Sanders, in a Suns bikini during a meeting, according to a report by ESPN.

“We’re passing it around like a hot potato,” said a former executive present at the meeting. “Like, what in the hell are we supposed to do with this?”

The photo was allegedly given to staffers early in Sarver’s tenure as owner. He took over the Suns in 2004.

Sarver denied the story through his legal team.

“This is a perfect example of how things get twisted,” he said. 

Sarver explained that an apparel retailer was awarded the license to sell NBA branded swimwear and had sent his wife a sample with a brochure, which he took a picture of.

He added that he took the picture of Sanders and gave it to people in charge of overseeing Suns merchandise.

Yet multiple Suns employees said that Sarver frequently discussed his sexual details about his marriage during staff meetings.

Others claimed that he asked players about their own sex lives and their romantic relationships.

“A lot of the stuff he says is to get a big reaction,” said a former employee. “And who’s going to tell him he can’t? He speaks in threats.”

NBA Spokesperson Mike Bass said the league hasn’t received any complaints of misconduct at the Suns organization, “including our confidential workplace misconduct hotline or other correspondence.”
