The NBA has launched an investigation into Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver who has been accused of racist and misogynist behavior and of creating a toxic work environment.

The move to look into Sarver's 17-year tenure as majority owner of the team comes on the heels of a lengthy ESPN report published on Thursday that detailed several instances in which Sarver, who is white, allegedly used racially offensive language in conversations with and about Black players, coaches and other staff.It also includes alleged accounts of sexist and inappropriate behavior.

In a statement that was issued hours after the publication of the story NBA Executive Vice President of Communications Mike Bass called the claims in the article "extremely serious." He added that the Wachtell Lipton law firm will conduct a comprehensive investigation on behalf of the league.

"The NBA and WNBA remain committed to providing a respectful and inclusive workplace for all employees. Once the investigation is completed, its findings will provide the basis for any league action," Bass wrote.
