The Phoenix Suns are reportedly the latest professional sports franchise to contemplate relocation if it doesn’t get a new arena deal.

Per Laurie Roberts of the Arizona Republic, Suns owner Robert Sarver is threatening Phoenix city officials with a move to Seattle or Las Vegas.

Sarver’s threat comes after Roberts reported Phoenix Mayor Thelda Williams and councilwomen Laura Pastor and Debra Star asked to postpone a Wednesday vote on contributing $150 million to a renovation of Talking Stick Resort Arena because the deal wouldn’t pass if held Wednesday.
