Warriors’ Steve Kerr on still owning small part of Phoenix Suns: ‘I’m not Steve Ballmer’

LAS VEGAS – The Warriors play against Phoenix today at the NBA Summer League, and in an unusual circumstance, coach Steve Kerr currently owns a small part of the Suns.

“I do, which is kind of crazy, but it’s in the process,” Kerr said of ultimately having to sell his stake of the Suns.

Kerr helped Phoenix owner Robert Sarver purchase the team and eventually became the team’s general manager.

Kerr must divest from the Suns and described his ownership stake as “very, very small.”

“I’m not Steve Ballmer,” Kerr said of the former Microsoft CEO who in May agreed to purchase the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion. “I’m Steve Kerr.”
