NBA Summer League: Phoenix Suns announce Vegas roster

The Phoenix Suns released their official NBA Summer League roster today that will travel with head coach Dan Majerle to Las Vegas, to play in five games from July 15-21.

The group is headlined by second-year pro Markieff Morris and rookie point guard Kendall Marshall, both of whom were taken 13th overall by Phoenix in the last two NBA drafts.  Behind Marshall, the Suns have 5-foot-8 New York bred Erving Walker, who started for Billy Donovan at Florida, along with Kansas State’s former floor general, Jacob Pullen.

One of the more intriguing inclusions is that of Patrick O’Bryant, the 7-foot center who was selected ninth overall in the 2006 draft by the Golden State Warriors. Out of Bradley, O’Bryant played for the Warriors, Celtics and Raptors before leaving the league for the D-League and overseas after 2010.

Phoenix also welcomes back Wisconsin Badger forward Marcus Landry, who was on the short-lived training camp roster heading into this past season.

Here’s the entire roster:
