PHOENIX (AP) -Phoenix guard Marcus Banks, who lost his spot in the Suns' rotation during last season, will play for the team's NBA Summer League squad in Las Vegas.
Banks was supposed to be the backup to Steve Nash after signing a five-year, $21 million contract last offseason. But he never quite fit in to the Suns' system and was out of the rotation by midseason.
Banks appeared in 45 games, averaging 4.9 points per contest.
The Phoenix Summer League roster, announced Tuesday, also includes first-round draft pick Alando Tucker and second-round pick D.J. Strawberry.
