Yang Hong-seok, one of the biggest free agents (FA), has decided to go to Changwon.
Pro basketball Changwon LG announced that it had signed a free agency contract with national team forward Yang Hong-seok for a five-year contract and a total compensation of 750 million won in the first year.
LG signed the contract on the 17th and officially announced the recruitment of free agents on the 18th.
Yang Hong-seok, who made his debut in KBL at Busan KT (currently Suwon KT) after receiving the second overall nomination in the 2017-2018 season, played in 298 games over six seasons, recording a career average of 12.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, and a field goal success rate of 46.5%.
In the 2022-2023 season, he played in 53 games and averaged 12.6 points and 5.9 rebounds.
Yang Hong-seok, a forward with an official height of 195 cm, is a forward who can play both the 3rd and 4th positions, and is evaluated for his good scoring ability and rebounding ability.
Yang Hong-seok said through the club, “I had a great desire to take on new challenges in a new environment. I will do my best to play happy and enjoyable basketball with my teammates for the passionate fans of Changwon.”
Last season, based on the leadership of new head coach Cho Sang-hyun, LG, which took second place in the regular league and caused a sensation, can prepare for the next season with a better power.
Yang Hong-seok has a wide attack range that produces goals and is quick to switch between offense and defense. He is a forward resource that can form a good combination with any foreign player. He also has a lot of activity, so if he melts into the system that coach Cho Sang-hyun wants, he has the possibility to show stronger defensive power.
LG recently secured Lee Kwan-hee through a free agent contract and recruited Lee Jae-do, and once again brought in a major player from the outside free agent market. It is a determination to achieve the goal of winning the first championship through active investment.
In addition, LG signed a contract with internal FA Jeong In-deok for a three-year contract period and a total remuneration of 90 million won.토스카지노
Jeong In-deok is one of the Cinderellas that LG discovered last season. Jeong In-deok, who debuted in KBL as a member of LG in 2016, retired at the end of the 2017-2018 season, showed his will to play basketball again, and took the opportunity to return to LG in the 2021 season.
Whenever he needed to strengthen his defense, he was put on the court and performed well, playing an important role in the LG rotation.
