Phoenix Suns president and CEO Jason Rowley resigned Monday, sources told ESPN's Baxter Holmes.

Rowley had been a Suns employee since 2007 and was named team president in 2012.

An ESPN report in December revealed workplace misconduct allegations against Rowley and other Suns executives. The report included allegations of verbal abuse against staff, mistreatment of pregnant and postpartum employees, and instances of retaliation and intimidation.

Rowley reportedly told Suns employees the report misrepresented him and that he wouldn't resign.

At the time, the Suns were already at the forefront of another NBA probe into the misconduct of then-owner Robert Sarver.

After the league suspended and fined Sarver, he announced in September that he sold the team. Billionaire mortgage lender Mat Ishbia bought the Suns and WNBA's Phoenix Mercury for $4 billion, pending league approval.
