Ghana Center Amida Brimah was involved in the just ended 2018 NBA Summer League with San Antonio Spurs in his second stint at the preseason competition mainly for first and second year players.

The 6 foot 11 inch Center fared better this time around than last year when he suited up for Chicago Bulls and played sparingly alongside Kris Dunn. This time around, Brimah played in eight games in the Utah and Las Vegas Summer Leagues respectively.

In three games in Utah, Amida averaged six points, seven rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game in three games as Spurs walked out with two wins and a loss to Utah Jazz.

In Las Vegas, he averaged 4.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and two blocks per game in five outings and his highlight moment was a near double double effort against eventual champions Portland Trailblazers.

The former University of Connecticut Captain and National Champion dropped nine points, nine rebounds and two blocks in the matchup. This should be good signs for Brimah's camp to believe a backup Center role will open up.

Last season, Brimah ended up on Spurs G-League affiliate side Austin and won the league title with them while leading the season in blocks. He can fit behind Pau Gasol on Spurs roster following the exit of Joffrey Lauvergne.
