Thursday afternoon, Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver introduced Ty Ellis as the first head coach in Northern Arizona Suns history.

The introductory press conference, held at the Prescott Valley Event Center, featured Sarver discussing his experiences in the banking industry and how those experiences helped prepare him for a career in professional hoop-filling ownership.

Basketball was discussed at one point, however, and Sarver was asked about the potential for the latest crop of Phoenix rookies.

Take it out of his salary. Here's a reminder of what the rookie out of the University of Washington can do. Excited for the season yet? The Suns kick things off against the Sacramento Kings on October 26th. Single-game tickets for the 2016-17 season go on sale Friday.
