Amida works out for Sixers ahead of Draft

Ghana and former University of Connecticut Center Amida Brimah has worked out for Philadelphia Sixers according to Philly.com with the 2017 NBA Draft just days away.

The Draft is scheduled to take place on June 22 at the Barclays Center in New York where prospective NBA players will be chosen by teams in the world’s greatest basketball league.

For Brimah, working out for Philly is the latest in a string of exhibitions by the defensive ace as he bids for what is likely to be a late round pick.

Ahead of the Draft, Brimah has worked out for Milwaukee Bucks, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz.

However, the young Philly side which is still undergoing a massive rebuild represents the best chance for Amida to showoff his talent as playing time is almost certain to be got in the city of brotherly love.

The Ghanaian played four season for the Huskies and won the 2014 National College Championship.

Should he be drafted on June 22, he will be the second ever Ghana-born player to be drafted into the NBA after Ben Bentil.
