Brimah working to get ready for Summer League

Brimah in action for San Antonio Spurs in the 2018 Summer League

Basketballghana.com gathers Ghana Center Amida Brimah is aiming to compete in this year’s NBA Summer League in July.

The 6 foot 10 inch Defender has an extensive period to get in shape for the preseason competition after his Austin Spurs surprisingly failed to qualify to the NBA Gatorade League playoffs.

To maximize his chances of landing an NBA standard contract after three years since turning professional, Brimah is working on the offensive side of his game. He is working with former University of Connecticut Coach Glen Miller.

He has teamed up with his former Associate Coach at University of Connecticut (UCONN) Glen Miller to help him in this regard.

Despite helping Spurs win last season’s G League title, leading the regular season in blocks in two straight seasons and getting named to All Defensive Team twice, Amida is still yet to play in the NBA.

He has played sparingly in the Summer League for Chicago Bulls before but his body of work in the G League and an impressive outing in this year’s Summer League could get him chances to be the second Ghana born player to play in the NBA.
