Ghana Center Amida Brimah will play in the NBA Summer League for the third time in his career after being named in the Brooklyn Nets roster for the upcoming preseason tournament.

The latest development comes on the back of another solid season from the former University of Connecticut Captain with Austin Spurs.

Despite Spurs missing the playoffs in the Gatorade League, Brimah produced 8.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks in 47 games.

He ranked second to San Lorenzo’s two time NBA Champion Joel Anthony in blocks at the FIBA World Club Championship held in Brazil.

Former Austin Spurs General Manager Andy Birdsong was recently appointed as the Assistant General Managers for the Nets and could have played an important role in recruiting Amida.

Brimah went undrafted in the 2017 Draft and featured for Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs in the Summer League before the Nets.

The 6 foot 11 inch defender has been named to the G League Defensive First Team twice and is aiming to seal an NBA roster spot.
