Nice Catch: Larry Fitzgerald Buys Minority Stake In Suns
NFL Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has "purchased a minority stake" in the Suns, becoming the second active NFL player with an NBA ownership share, according to Wojnarowski & Schefter of ESPN.com. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers in '18 bought a share of the Bucks. Fitzgerald has a "strong relationship" with Suns Owner Robert Sarver, and the limited partnership "has been in the works for months." Fitzgerald already has a "significant ambassador's role" with the Suns, and he has done "everything from sit in on potential front office candidate interviews to canvass for a Suns public arena vote." Sources said that he will not take on a "more active role with the Suns until his professional football playing career is over" (ESPN.com, 1/22).
