Robert Sura Jr. (born March 25, 1973, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania) is an American former professional basketball player who last played for the Houston Rockets in the NBA. At 6'5" (1.96 m), 200 lb (91 kg), he played as a guard.

Sura played in high school at G.A.R. Memorial in Wilkes-Barre. He had a high game of 69 while leading G.A.R. to a remarkable streak of 86 consecutive league victories.

After high school, Sura played basketball for Florida State University, playing on the same team as fellow NBA players Charlie Ward and Sam Cassell.

Sura was drafted 17th overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 1995 NBA Draft. His best season with the Cavaliers was his last, averaging 13.8 points per game during the 1999-2000 season. He was then traded to the Golden State Warriors, and has also played for the Detroit Pistons, the Atlanta Hawks and the Houston Rockets.

With the Hawks, he gained attention by almost posting three straight triple-double games - the third was subsequently taken away from him by the league when he purposely missed a layup to get his 10th rebound.[1] With the Rockets, Sura was considered by many analysts to be a key to their regular season success until he suffered an injury that has kept him from playing ever since.

Sura competed in the 3-point tournament during the All-Star Weekend, as well as the Slam Dunk competition. Sura's career averages include 8.6 points per game. In the 2004-05 season, his last season due to injury, he averaged 10.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.5 assists.

Sura's Florida State jersey was retired in 2007, where he is the school's all time leading scorer.

On October 29, 2007, Sura, and three other Houston Rockets were cut from the team.
