One of the best point guards to ever wear a LIU Brooklyn uniform and one of the their best player in their history, Jason Brickman, who was playing in his first season of professional basketball in Russia for Dynamo Moscow, was released by the club after the two sides mutually agreed to terminate his contract (release is in Russian) right before Thanksgiving.
Brickman who finished his college career last season as the NCAA’s fourth-best career assist leader with 1009, signed a two-year deal with Dynamo Moscow over the summer.
Brickman played in 11 games for the club. He played in eight Russian Superleague games where he averaged 2.0 points/game and 2.8 assists/game in about 12 minutes/game. He took just 16 shots in those eight games, going 5 for 16 including two three-pointers. He also played in three Baltic League games where he got more playing time. He averaged 2.0 points/game, 6.3 assists/game and also 3.3 rebounds/game while getting 24.3 minutes/game. He made just two of eighteen shots in those games. He was primarily playing as their backup point guard.
Hopefully, Brickman will get another opportunity to play elsewhere and better showcase his talents.
