Mortgage lender, billionaire Mat Ishbia will be buying the most of the shares of the reputed basketball team Phoenix Suns along with the Mercury from WNBA. The price fixed on four billion dollars now will be the highest in history.
Mat Ishbia along with the current owner of the team, Robert Sarver has recently announced that they have finally reached a deal on last Tuesday.
Despite the Suns’ recent success in the NBA season, Sarver has had a tumultuous tenure with the team so far which will be ending once the paperwork is done.
Mat Ishbia has lived a well-reputed business as a career, and also has been highly regarded in the office of NBA. He has developed a good relationship with several owners of the league. However, as per the rules, the businessman’s background will now go under scrutiny and then a voting will happen under the governor’s board before he take charge of the Suns’. However, that will be nothing but a mere formality for him.
