This comes on the back of Brimah getting waived by Indiana Pacers prior to the commencement of the 2020-2021 NBA season after signing an Exhibit 10 contract with Indiana.

Signing such a contract means players waived before the start of a season get attached to an affiliate team in the G League which serves as a development league for young players in the NBA or a route into the league for veteran players.

Fort Wayne Mad Ants is the G League affiliate of Indiana Pacers and Brimah was scheduled to play for Fort Wayne last season before he suffered a torn ACL injury.

Should he go through and play in the G League, it would be the former University of Connecticut player’s third run out in the league after playing a couple of years for Austin Spurs and won the G League title in his first season.

The NBA G League commences on February 8.
