Ghana Center Amida Brimah is under consideration to fill a spot on the Cleveland Cavaliers roster as backup to Larry Nance Jnr.
The former University of Connecticut Captain has been tabled as one of three candidates in strong contention for a ten day contract per cavsnation.com
The 2016 NBA Champions are without starting Center Tristan Thompson for the next two weeks due to an ankle injury.
Nance Jnr. filled his spot and registered an eye catching 22 points and 15 rebounds double double in Cleveland’s win over Detroit Pistons early this morning.
After trading veteran big man Channing Frye last month and Kevin Love expected to miss games this month, Cleveland’s frontcourt is thin.
Signing the 6 foot 11 inch Brimah is a move to that posits as a way to improve the team’s defense since he is an elite rim protector and leads the NBA Gatorade League in blocks with 2.7 per game.
He is averaging 6.4 points and seven rebounds for Austin Spurs since graduating from Connecticut.
