Over the weekend, the Dallas Mavericks added two more players to their eventual training camp roster. On Saturday, the team reached an agreement on a partially guaranteed multi-year deal with forward Brandon Ashley. Then, on Sunday, it was reported that forward Jamil Wilson also came to terms a partially guaranteed deal with Dallas. Both deals were first reported by RealGM's Shams Charania.
Ashley declared for the NBA Draft this summer after completing his junior year at Arizona. After going undrafted, Ashley found himself on the Atlanta Hawks' Summer League team in Las Vegas. The 6'9 forward averaged 10.4 points on 50.9 percent shooting and 5.3 rebounds in seven games. He poured in 16 points and grabbed five rebounds off the bench against the Mavericks as the Hawks eliminated Dallas from the tournament.
The 6'7 Wilson, who will sign with the team on Monday, went undrafted in 2014 and played for the Bakersfield Jam in the D-League last season. In 41 games, he averaged 10.9 points on 42.7 percent shooting, 5.4 rebounds, and two assists. He played for the Washington Wizards' team at Summer League in July. Wilson averaged 7.4 points on 41.7 percent shooting and 3.2 rebounds with the Wizards in Vegas.
These additions bring the Mavs' training camp roster to 18. Teams are only allowed 15 players on their final roster. It's likely that these two will find their way to the Texas Legends next season. (Although there is an issue with Wilson's rights currently being owned by the Suns.) Dallas, though, will see what they've got to show first.
Here's a couple examples of what the pair can do.
