Jason Brickman signs with T1’s Kaohsiung Aquas


Taiwan’s latest basketball league has gotten into the mix of signing Filipino talents.

Jason Brickman has signed with T1 team Kaohsiung Aquas, the team announced on Friday.

“Jason Brickman has stood out in many countries,” said Aquas executive director Li Weicheng. “The main reason for this is his ability to control the game.

“He will be an important player for the Aquas.”

Currently, T1 has six clubs which allows the signing of two Asian, Chinese, or naturalized player.

Unlike in the B.League, T1 teams can only play their Asian player for just two quarters or a total of 20 minutes.

Brickman though is signed with Meralco 3×3.

The 6-foot floor general is definitely one of the top point guards in Asia.

After a stellar four-year run in LIU Brooklyn that saw him become only the fourth player in NCAA Division I history to tally 1,000 assists, Brickman played pro ball in Dynamo Moscow and Medi Bayreuth.

He then made his mark in the ASEAN Basketball League. He and Matthew Wright led Westports Malaysia Dragons to the 2015-16 title.
