Suns Layoff Approximately 30 Employees 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Aug 1, 2020 3:37 am

The Phoenix Suns have confirmed they are moving forward with an unspecific number of layoffs.


"We've been working on restructuring a number of departments since early this year," Suns Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Dean Stoyer, told The Republic, in confirming the layoffs. "We found that some of the roles were redundant, some roles were outdated and there were some roles impacted for performance reasons."


The site sports360az.com reported that 30 employees were laid off.


The Suns have also sold their G League team and have parted ways with assistant coaches Steve Blake and Larry Greer.


Stoyer separately told Sports Business Daily that COVID-19 "was not a factor" in the cuts.

Looks like they forgot to laid off their owner, who has one of the worst performance in the past few years.
