Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver has long been an unpopular figure within the fan base and around the league.

Suns fans have been fed up with him in recent days, amid the reports that he is responsible for the hangup in offering former No. 1 pick DeAndre Ayton a maximum contract extension.

Now, according to NBA analyst Jordan Schultz, a far more damning report about Sarver could be coming out. It is light on the details, but Schultz says it involves accusations of “racism, sexism, and sexual harassment in a series of incidents.”

The NBA is gearing up for the full story on Sarver to drop, Schultz says. If it’s as bad as indicated, it could be the second time that Adam Silver has had to deal with something like this during his tenure as commissioner, after the ouster of former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling in 2014. The longtime Clippers owner was forced to sell the team after private recordings of him making racist, anti-Black comments leaked.

So far, we have no statement from the NBA, the Phoenix Suns, or from Robert Sarver himself.
