Brimah to earn $50,000 after getting waived by Pacers

Basketballghana.com can confirm Ghana Center Amida Brimah stands to earn $50,000 despite getting cut from Indiana Pacers final roster for the 2019-2020 NBA season.

Amida and two other players were released by Pacers ahead of the October 21 deadline for final roster announcements by NBA teams.

Guards Wade Lemon Jnr. and C.J. Wilcox and Brimah were left out of Pacers final roster after Indiana’s final preseason game played on Wednesday, October 16.

Indiana Pacers lost 111-119 to Minnesota Timberwolves in the last of four preseason games; Brimah did not play in the game.

After signing a one year, partially guaranteed deal with Pacers following a string of impressive performances for Brooklyn Nets in the NBA Summer League, an Exhibit 10 clause was inserted in Brimah’s contract making him eligible for the bonus money if he didn’t make Indiana’s final roster.

This is the second time in two years Brimah has competed in preseason on an NBA roster but missed the final roster. Last season, he suited for San Antonio Spurs but got cut and returned to the team’s Gatorade League affiliate-Austin Spurs.
