SUN-BURNED: New Suns Owner Robert Sarver to the ARIZONA REPUBLIC on Suns Chairman Jerry Colangelo’s role negotiating the team’s recent $66M deal with Steve Nash: "It clarified to me the value of having Jerry involved for the next three years at least.

"When Jerry spoke, I could see how Steve and his agent paid particular attention. Part of it was the respect Steve had for him. Jerry is also a very skilled negotiator."

Tell that to the beleaguered beancounters at the BOB.
