Veteran Kim Jong-un, who represents WKBL, returns to his parents’ home.
On the 20th, the Bucheon Hana 1Q women’s basketball team 메이저사이트announced that they had signed a contract with free agent Kim Jong-un. The contract period is 2 years, a total of 250 million won (200 million won annual salary, 50 million won allowance). As a result, Kim Jong-un obtained FA qualification in 2017 and returned to Hana 1Q 6 years after transferring to Woori Bank.
Kim Jong-un, who graduated from Onyang Girls’ High School and joined the Shinsegae, which can be called the predecessor of Hana 1Q, with the first overall ranking in the 2006 WKBL new player selection meeting, was a ‘previous rookie’ who stood out from his debut season, the 2006 winter league.
Kim Jong-un, who played an average of more than 35 minutes since his rookie days, took on the role of the team’s main scorer early on, and played the role of ‘the girl’s head’ while leading the team that had poor results.
Kim Jong-un, who was the franchise star of the team until the days of KEB Hana following Shinsegae, decreased the number of games and time due to an injury from the 2015-16 season, and after the 2016-17 season, he suddenly chose to transfer to Woori Bank, where he lived for 12 years. left
Since his debut, Kim Jong-un, who has been fighting only with the goal of making the team playoffs, has splendidly revived after transferring to Woori Bank. He played 169 games in 6 seasons and experienced 4 regular league championships and 2 combined championships. In the 2017-18 season, the first year of his transfer, he won the championship MVP.
Kim Jong-un, who had chronic injuries such as back and ankles, showed steady performance last season, participating in all 30 regular league games, and contributed to Woori Bank’s unified victory, which became a ‘mega super team’ with the recruitment of Kim Dan-bi.
In the regular league, the average score fell below 10 points for the first time after transferring to Woori Bank, but at the decisive moment, it undoubtedly lived up to its name. He posted an average of 11.4 points in 5 games of the playoffs and the championship game, and in the 3rd game of the championship game, he recorded a double double (18 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists) including 5 3-pointers, and scored the winning goal of Woori Bank.
After winning the combined championship, Kim Jong-un, who obtained FA status again, was initially predicted to be highly likely to remain at Woori Bank, but eventually responded to the earnest call of his parent team.
Hana 1Q, a representative young team in the league, is not recognized for its high competitiveness in its existing power itself. I tried to rebuild steadily, but I missed key players in the free agent market, and I didn’t get satisfactory results in the trade.
They are trying to rebuild again and young players are forming the main axis, but they desperately need experienced veterans to lead them. In particular, as the entire team will be in their 20s next season, they needed a player who can comfort and lead the young players on and off the court.
In the end, Hana 1Q re-recruited the team’s franchise star six years ago, which it failed to protect due to a mistake in market conditions and player evaluation, and achieved results in the free agent market for the first time in a long time.
