Robert Sarver is bowing out.

The majority owner of the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury is “seeking buyers” for the two franchises a week after he was suspended for one year from any activities involving both teams and fined $10 million for ”workplace misconduct and organizational deficiencies” found during an NBA investigation.

 “As a man of faith, I believe in atonement and the path to forgiveness,” Sarver said in a statement. “I expected that the commissioner’s one-year suspension would provide the time for me to focus, make amends and remove my personal controversy from the teams that I and so many fans love.

“But in our current unforgiving climate, it has become painfully clear that that is no longer possible – that whatever good I have done, or could still do, is outweighed by things I have said in the past. For those reasons, I am beginning the process of seeking buyers for the Suns and Mercury.”
