‘Lee Kwan-hee and Lee Jae-do followed by Yang Hong-seok’ LG, dream of presidency

Professional basketball Changwon LG Sakers upgraded their power once again by recruiting national team forward Yang Hong-seok.

LG announced on the 18th that it had signed a free agent contract with Yang Hong-seok for a five-year contract period and a total compensation of 750 million won to strengthen position competitiveness.

Yang Hong-seok was selected as the biggest player along with Choi Jun-yong and Oh Se-geun in the FA market.

After being nominated by KT as the second overall pick in the 2017-18 season rookie draft and debuting as a pro, he played in a total of 298 regular games without major injuries for six seasons. In particular, despite his tall stature, he has the advantage of scoring and rebounding based on his large amount of activity. In the 2022-23 season, he played in 53 games and averaged 12.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists.

In particular, LG is showing its will to win by actively recruiting special free agents this year following last year.

LG simultaneously recruited top guards Lee Kwan-hee and Lee Jae-do, who obtained FA qualifications last year. Including the compensation for the recruitment of free agents, a whopping 1.9 billion won was invested in bringing in the two players.

The effect of the investment was immediate. LG, who failed to advance to the playoffs in the round of 6 by staying in 7th place in the previous season, immediately took second place in the regular league last season and went directly to the playoffs in the quarterfinals. It was only one game away from Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation, which took first place in the regular league.

However, LG suffered a shocking 3-game losing streak to Seoul SK in the semi-final playoffs and was unable to even step on the championship match stage.

Then LG opened the wallet once again. The squad was strengthened once again by recruiting Yang Hong-seok, one of the top forwards in Korea.

In addition, internal free agent Jung In-deok, who has strengths in defense, has also renewed the contract under the terms of a contract period of 3 years and a total fee of 90 million won, allowing the club to continue the pursuit of ‘fast basketball based on strong defense’.

Attention is focusing on whether LG’s move to win the presidency through active investment will lead to its first championship 메이저사이트.
