Ghana Center Amida Brimah’s basketball journey continues to unfold in twisting ways as his latest move confirms following his release by NBA side Indiana Pacers.

The 6 foot 10 inch defender has since his release signed for Puerto Rican BSN side Mets de Guaynabo and is expected to compete for the team in the aftermath of the league’s All Star break.

He played and won the Gatorade League during his two year stay at Austin Spurs and had another two year run with Fort Wayne Mad Ants before his brief run with the Pacers.

During his time with Indiana, Brimah became the first Ghana born player to score points in the NBA; he is the second ever Ghana born player to play in the NBA after Ben Bentil broke through in 2018.
