After a pretty good showing in his first game for the Atlanta Hawks, Brandon Ashley scored just four points on Sunday, and then picked up just three points in 20 minutes of play on Monday

Even though he didn't score a ton, he did impress some:
Like the way Brandon Ashley plays offense. Not scoring much, but makes good decisions on and off the ball.— vorped (@vorped) July 13, 2015
And apparently he had a little run in with Hasheem Thabeet, who is playing for a D-League select team.

Thabeet blocks Brandon Ashely on a dunk attempt, gets called for the foul. Tells Ashley to open his eyes when he tries to do that. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯— Zach Harper (@talkhoops) July 13, 2015
Brandon Ashley got blocked by Thabeet or that would have been a nice dime from Lil Dog.— Buddy Grizzard (@BuddyGrizzard) July 13, 2015
Ashley certainly has a shot to at least get an invite to Hawks training camp, and their coach confirmed that on Monday.
Unsurprisingly, Kenny Atkinson said that Glenn Robinson III, Terran Petteway and Brandon Ashley are the non-roster guys w/ most attention.— Peachtree Hoops (@peachtreehoops) July 14, 2015
Ashley and the Hawks will be back in action on Wednesday for the beginning of the Championship bracket after going 1-2 in their three games.
