   2010 Summer League Rosters: Phoenix Suns

Anton Ponkrashov

Ponkrashov is a member of the CSKA Moscow team that has made the Euroleague Final Four for a whopping 8 years in a row. He is a 6'7 point guard, and a genuine one at that, with good passing vision and ball handling skills, although he can't defend or shoot. Last year, as the third stringer backing up Zoran Planinic and J.R. Holden, the Ponkster averaged 4.4 points and 1.7 assists per game; with Planinic leaving and Holden aging, maybe Ponkrashov will get a bigger role next year. Either way, he's not NBA material.

- Anton Ponkrashov

Russian guard Ponkrashov was on loan to Khimky from CSKA Moscow for the last two seasons, but CSKA recalled him this summer. Backing up both J.R. Holden and Zoran Planinic, Ponkrashov is not playing much, averaging only 8.2 minutes in the Euroleague and 10.6 in the Russian league. He has averaged 3.0 points and 0.7 assists in the former, and 4.3/1.4 in the latter.
