Brandon Ashley is making a strong case to make the Dallas Mavericks’ roster this fall — or at least receive a training camp invite.

The former Arizona forward had another impressive showing at Las Vegas Summer League on Sunday, pouring in 12 points on seven shots and grabbing two rebounds in 18 minutes.

It came a day after Ashley scored 21 points in 20 minutes. In total, he is shooting 13 of 22 from the field and 3 of 7 from 3 in two games in Vegas, averaging 16.5 points per contest.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said Ashley has a “real shot” at making the team.

Ashley and the Mavericks are back in action Tuesday against the Miami Heat.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson got another start for the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday and had eight points and 12 rebounds on 2 of 9 shooting.

Kadeem Allen had two points (1-5 FG), two rebounds, an assist, and a steal in 13 minutes in the Boston Celtics 70-64 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Nick Johnson had one point and four rebounds in 10 minutes for Portland.

Kobi Simmons had two points and one rebound in 15 minutes on 1 of 4 shooting for the Memphis Grizzlies.

Kaleb Tarczewski had eight points (3-5 FG), four rebounds, and a block in eight minutes in a start for the Philadelphia 76ers.

Three Arizona Wildcats in action Monday

Lauri Markkanen will make his second appearance with the Chicago Bulls on Sunday. They take on the Atlanta Hawks at 1 p.m. PST (ESPNU).

Markkanen had 14 points and eight rebounds in his debut on Saturday.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and the Nets face the New Orleans Pelicans at 3 p.m. PST (ESPNU).

Gabe York and the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Sacramento Kings at 7:30 p.m. PST (NBATV).

York has not played in the Lakers’ first two Summer League games, meaning he is more likely to play sooner than later.
