Draft Profile: Brandon Ashley

Brandon Ashley is hoping to hear his name called at the NBA Draft. Read on to see what his strengths and weaknesses are and more.

Former Arizona Wildcat Brandon Ashley has worked out for various NBA teams with a hope that he can hear his name called later in June.

Compared to his teammates Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Stanley Johnson, Ashley's draft stock is not as solidified.

"Brandon put together a solid three-year run at Arizona," an Eastern conference scout said. "He runs the pick-and-roll well and has a jumper out to 17 feet.

"One cause for concern is that he can match athletic bigs, but he struggles with bigger, more physical guys."

Ashley started the year as a projected late first round pick, but has since dropped to a second round selection or possibly undrafted.

Here is a pre-draft breakdown:

NBA Position: SF or PF "Tweener"

Height: 6-foot-8

Weight: 228 pounds

Strengths

1) Pick-and-roll ability

2) Can put the ball on the floor

3) Running the floor

4) Midrange jumper

Weaknesses

1) Motor

2) Physicality

3) Lack of NBA position

Scout's Outlook:

"Ashley is a talented player, but most second round picks are wait and see players.

"He'll have an opportunity to showcase himself some more during the summer league, period."
