Pacers' Amida Brimah: Inks Exhibit 10 with Pacers
Brimah (knee) has signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Pacers, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports.
Brimah has presumably healed from the torn ACL he suffered in October of 2019, and he'll look to make the Pacers' roster this season. He has yet to see NBA action, spending the 2017-18 and 2018-19 campaigns in the G League with the Austin Spurs. In Brimah's G League career, he's averaging 7.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.8 blocks and 1.0 assists in 23.0 minutes. It's extremely unlikely that Brimah will have fantasy relevance this season....

Brimah played 18 minutes in Tuesday's loss to Agua Caliente, finishing the game with 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds and two assists.
Brimah is averaging 23.6 minutes per contest, so it was actually a down night for the Austin big man, likely due to his five turnovers and three fouls.

Spurs' Amida Brimah: Headed to camp with Spurs
Brimah signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Spurs on Tuesday, Keith Smith of RealGM reports.

Otherwise, he would also receive $50,000 if waived and then joins the team's G-League affiliate.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Amida Brimah: Perfect from the field in ugly loss
Brimah had eight points on 4-4 shooting, adding three rebounds and two blocks in 17 minutes during Friday's 90-55 summer league loss to the Suns.
Brimah continues to shoot the ball well, albeit on very low volume. He saw his playing dip a little in this one, however, that was likely due to the nature of the scoreline and the opportunity to get the bench players some additional run. He has demonstrated a nice ability to rack up blocks in a short amount of time but is still far from a lock to even make their training camp.... See More ... See Less
Spurs' Amida Brimah: Blocks six shots in overtime loss
Brimah had just four points on 2-of-2 shooting but added eight rebounds and six blocks in 23 minutes during Thursday's 83-75 summer league loss to Milwaukee.
Brimah was quiet on the offensive end but was able to provide some elite rim protection in the overtime loss. He has seen his playing time increase over the week and while he is still a long way from getting a look into the main roster, his improved play has been a real positive for the Spurs organization....

Spurs' Amida Brimah: Comes just shy of double-double Tuesday
Brimah just missed a double-double in Tuesday's 89-95 summer league loss to the Trail Blazers, tallying nine points (3-4 FG, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and two blocks across just 16 minutes.
Brimah was all over the floor in limited minutes off the bench and his nine rebounds marked a team-high. He also knocked down an efficient 3-of-4 attempts from the field and he could have earned himself a longer look in the final few summer league games later this week. Coming into Tuesday's contest, Brimah saw a total of just 12 minutes in the first two summer league outings in Las Vegas. The 24-year-old is likely a candidate to start the season in the G-League or overseas.... See More ... See Less
