Through prior work with Suns vice chairman Sam Garvin, Casper found himself on the Suns' potential-hire radar. "It's a win-win," said Sarver, who also announced the promotion of Jason Rowley from general counsel to chief operating officer. "He brings a lot of innovation, creativity and passion to the organization." Casper, who became an immediate admirer of the Suns after moving here, appreciates any perception-based skepticism. "What does a guy who peddled soap know about basketball?" said Casper, anticipating potential sentiments of the doomsday watchdogs referenced earlier. Fox Sports Arizona
