Mat Isbia has assumed control of the Phoenix Suns after completing his purchase of the franchise from Robert Sarver.
The NBA expedited the process of transferring ownership to Ishbia in order to allow him to oversee the Suns before the trade deadline.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Ishbia is “fully engaged overseeing the organization and has been aggressive in pursuing ways to make a major and immediate impact.”
The Suns have been linked with a possible trade with Kevin Durant both last offseason and leading up to the trade deadline. Durant and the Brooklyn Nets are currently discussing their future together following their trade of Kyrie Irving.
