In the KBL, he averaged 17.5 points and 7.4 rebounds 텍사스홀덤 in 78 games.

He also wore a Daegu KOGAS jersey last season, but left the team after injuring his left Achilles tendon in the first game of the KBL Cup tournament.

“We signed Hicks because he has recovered his health,” said an SK official, “and we believe that he has fully agreed with the club about his role in the team as he improves his physical condition, and there will be no problem coexisting with Jamil Warney (30-199 cm).”

Why LG re-signed Park Joon-hyung after two seasons of ‘0’ appearances

“We told him it was his last chance and it definitely motivated him.”

The KBL announced the results of the 2024 free agency period. Of the 46 free agents, 28 have re-signed, four have retired, and the 14 who did not sign will await Letters of Intent from other clubs.

Changwon LG sent Jung Hee-jae and Lim Dong-seop to Goyang Sono, but retained Lee Jae-do and Park Jun-hyung.

Lee Jae-do is the centerpiece of the team, so it’s no surprise.

However, Park Jun-hyung 토토사이트 추천 is a surprise.

Park was selected with the first pick of the third round in the 2022 KBL Rookie Draft and wore an LG jersey.

During the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 seasons, Park didn’t even make the roster, let alone play in the regular season.

In those two seasons, Park averaged 3.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in 18 minutes and 26 seconds per game in 16 games in the D-League.

While his stats don’t stand out, his work ethic was praised. It was said that if he was 5 centimeters taller, he would have been given a chance.

However, LG could have waived him if he wasn’t even on the roster, so why did they re-sign him?

An LG representative said, “They are diligent in training and energize the team without clouding the atmosphere. Kim Kwang-jin and Kim Jong-ho will return from the military in November and December. Because of this, we need an adequate number of players to prepare for the season before they return. The club and coaching staff believe that it is better to have a player who has adapted to our team than to look for someone from the outside,” said Park, explaining the reason for re-signing Park Jun-hyung, saying, “Although there are some areas where his skills are lacking, we told him that it was his last chance and gave him a solid motivation.”

This is the first time LG has signed a former third-round pick to a free agent contract since Park Bum-jae in 2007, and the last time they signed a player from outside the organization (former Orions) was Kim Yong-woo in 2010.


‘4R 7 wins’ GASCO squad receives round bonus

KOGAS pays round bonuses to teams earlier than usual to boost their morale.

Daegu KOGAS struggled through Round 3 with a record of 7 wins and 20 losses. They were in 9th place. They were closer to 10th place (Samsung) with a 2.5-game lead than to 7th place (Sono, Chung Kwan-jang) with a 2-game lead.

The KBL rules allow teams to pay bonuses to their players per round. The threshold is up to the team.

Gazprom set a threshold of five wins for the round bonus.

GAS won one game in Round 1, two games in Round 2, and four games in Round 3.

They didn’t receive a bonus in the previous rounds, but in Round 4, they exceeded it by two wins, finishing as the best team out of 10.

GAS has one game left in Round 4 (Feb. 1 vs. KT) based on match numbers. Losing this game will not change the fact that they have met the criteria to receive the bonus.

In practical terms, GASCO, which is entering Round 5, will be able to earn more bonuses if it continues its surge.
