From going undrafted, to landing a spot on the summer league team for the Atlanta Hawks in Las Vegas, Brandon Ashley will now head to Dallas. Reports are saying that he has signed a multi-year, partially guaranteed contract with the Dallas Mavericks.
Although his deal has some guaranteed money, it's no guarantee that he will make the team. According to ESPN's Marc Stein, he is all part of a plan to secure the best unsigned talent from around the league.
New buzzword in Dallas is "optionality." Mavs plan to bring more than 15 guaranteed contracts to camp and eating money in search of best mix— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 25, 2015
In seven games with the Hawks, Ashley averaged 10.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists. It seems likely that he'll find himself heading to the Texas Legends, Dallas' D-League affiliate, to spend some time there.
