Poslije Nemanje Vranješa iz Budućnosti VOLI, Strahinje Mićovića iz Igokee, najboljeg igrača Balkanske lige Brendisa Rejlija Rosa iz bugarske Beroe i centra Partizana NIS Uroša Lukovića, Mornar je jači i za Amerikanca s crnogorskim pasošem Derika Nidama.

Kroz karijeru je igrao za Šiauliai iz Litvanije, Himik iz Ukrajine, Leven iz Braunšvajga i italijansku Ređanu. U Ukrajini je bio proglašen za najboljeg igrača lige, sa Ređanom je 2016. igrao finale italijanskog šampionata, dok je tim iz Ređo Emilije ove godine takmičenje završio u četvrtfinalu plej-ofa. Za italijanski klub u prosjeku je postizao 7,8 poena i imao 2,4 asistencije.

Nidam je stavio potpis na jednogodišnju vjernost Mornaru.
