Ghana Center has signed a partially guaranteed contract with Indiana Pacers after impressing in limited minutes at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
The 6 foot 11 inch defender joins the Pacers roster as a training camp invitee ahead of the team’s preseason in September.
The Pacers have a spot on its roster for such provisions; Brimah was set to join the team for the Summer League before joining forces with Brooklyn Nets.
With the Nets, the 25 year old former University of Connecticut Captain 6.2 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in limited minutes behind Jarett Allen and Nic Claxson.
However, his impressive displays against Washington Wizards and Minnesota Timberwolves (in the semifinals) caught the attention of many NBA teams.
Brimah registered four blocks in both games and scored 12 points and 10 rebounds against Minnesota when he had an extensive run on the court. He played 19 minutes.
Should he make the Pacers roster for next season, he would be the second Ghana born player to play in the NBA. Ben Bentil was the first in 2017 while playing for Dallas Mavericks.
