The Dallas Mavericks continue to fill out their roster by signing a familiar face in Brandon Ashley to a contract.

Two years ago, the Dallas Mavericks brought in a full 20 man training camp by filling out the roster with players such as Kyle Collinsworth and Jameel Warney.

Another one of those names was an undrafted forward out of the University of Arizona by the name of Brandon Ashley.

Ashley wouldn’t make the roster that year and would spend time overseas during the 2016-17 season last year. He got his second chance with the Mavericks after coming on board with the Mavericks’ Summer League squad this summer.

In Orlando, Ashley averaged eight points and five rebounds for the Mavericks’ championship squad. In Las Vegas, Ashley would join the Mavericks and form a nice chemistry with Dennis Smith Jr. where he would average eleven points and three rebounds in six games played.

On Thursday, Dallas rewarded that play by signing Ashley to a contract.

Sent out through a press release, the Mavericks announced they had signed Ashley to a contract as the terms of the deal were not disclosed.

It is unsure at the moment what the plan with Ashley will be going forward but he will come into training camp looking to earn a regular season roster spot or the other two-way deal. He could also be sent to the Texas Legends as an affiliate type of player.
