5. Stud - Brandon Randolph

It’s been an up-and-down Summer League game for Brandon Randolph, who spent this past season playing in the G League. But luckily for him and the Mavericks, he finished off the stint with a bang.

The 6-foot-6 wing out of Arizona finished the game with 20 points and two rebounds while shooting 7-of-13 from the field and 3-of-7 from behind the three-point line.

Randolph even managed to draw a four-point play against the Hawks, getting fouled while shooting a three. It was a complete turnaround from his last game.

The wing seriously struggled in the Mavericks last game, as he was unable to hit his three-point shots. But against Atlanta, he did just that, which is a necessary development for his NBA dreams.

The 25-year-old showed some intriguing skills throughout Summer League, but his athleticism stood out above everything else, as he was constantly running and hustling for the Mavericks.

There’s a chance Dallas looks at him for a two-way deal, but it seems more likely that they attempt to keep him around as a guy on the Texas Legends.

Randolph’s athleticism could be a useful skill for Dallas to keep around, and this game was a great showing for him, but barring a serious improvement in his three-point shot, he’s more of a G League developmental project.
