This has been posted on virtually all Suns social media. You can find it on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. I'm not going to post all those links though, here's the letter. Hope he's committed to the future as much as he was committed this season, if so then I don't think he'll be the main hurdle to overcome, which the will be nice.

Hope he backs this up with his wallet. We need to keep building this team.

i Don’t think he can. I think Sarver is one of the lower income owners in the NBA. He’s not a billionaire he’s only worth like 4-500 million the Suns are his major source of income.

Micky Arison said he lost money on the Heat every year of the Big 3 that damn sure ain’t gonna happen here.

And thankfully no parade not that the team doesn't deserve it.

He went out of his way to say he's paid the tax before and he's willing to do so again for a contender. The question will be how long will he pay the tax. 1 season isn't likely to cut it.

He couldn't take the fan backlash if he were to cheapen out on going for it right now.

Sarver has no choice but to go all in now. If he doesn't he is going to be skewered not just by the fans, but analysts and likely would cause an exodus from guys like Booker and Ayton. He is past the point of no return. It's the cost of success.

After the Kurt Thomas trade I don't think Sarver has been cheap but he has spent the money in the wrong places. I really think Sarver wants to win but the Ryan McDonough years sidetracked him.

I think that’s cute that you think he cares what the fans and media think of him. Dude he’s been a joke for the last 10 years

his biggest problem and we’re going to see if he fixes this is he’s a micro manager he thinks he knows more than his basketball guys. Hopefully he just gets out of the way and let’s James Jones do his job

I think Sarver, fingers crossed, has finally reached this point and will rely on basketball people like James Jones and Monty Williams to make the decisions.

He's a lot of things but he's not stupid. He finally figured out the winning formula and that's for him to let the experts do their jobs.

ETA: Of course, he finally found the right experts. McD was a failed experiment. It just took him awhile to realize it but realize it he did.
