Reports reaching Basketballghana.com indicate a couple of Ghana Center Amida Brimah could feature in the latter part of the NBA 2020-2021 season due to a possible ruling on Two Way contracts mechanisms.
Brimah is one of two players on a two way contract at Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the NBA Gatorade League (G League). A two way contract means players can shuttle between playing in the G League and an affiliate team in the NBA over the course of a regular season.
Indiana Pacers is the NBA affiliate team of Fort Wayne Mad Ants and Brimah was assigned to the latter after signing a one year deal with Indiana prior to the start of the season.
Players on such contracts are restricted to 50 games in the regular season and can’t compete in the post season or playoffs in its present state.
However, NBA insider Shams Charania has reported the league’s Board of Governors plan to approve changes to the rule to allow players play beyond 50 games in the regular season and compete in the playoffs.
Brimah ranked second in the G League with 2.8 blocks per game and could be called up to the Pacers for the rest of the regular season and possible playoffs.
