Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver said Thursday that he is fully committed to keeping the team in Phoenix.
Sarver put out a video message via Twitter a day after a Phoenix City Council vote to approve $230 million in renovations was postponed to next month.

The Arizona Republic reported Wednesday that Sarver recently called a council member and said he would take the team to Seattle or Las Vegas if the arena deal doesn’t go through.

Along with the stadium improvements, Sarver said the team is looking to build a “first-class” practice facility.
The renovation vote has been rescheduled for Jan. 23 so residents can attend five public meetings to be held around Phoenix to discuss the project.
Not sure I’m buying what Sarver is selling.
Just a reminder, check the tweet below:
