On the 1st, Woori Bank-Shinhan Bank traded, KB-HanawonQ also traded.
Two trades were made less than a day after the FA market came to an end.
Woori Bank’s Wooriwon team and Shinhan Bank’s Sbird team announced on the official SNS on the 1st that Woori Bank’s guard Kim Ji-young transferred to Shinhan Bank and Shinhan Bank’s guard Yoo Seung-hee wore a Woori Bank uniform on a 1:1 trade. KB Stars and Hana 1Q, where compensation player Eom Seo-i transferred the previous day, also made a deal to transfer Choi Ji-seon, who played for KB, to Hana 1-Q, and Lee Chae-eun, who played for Hana 1-Q, to KB through additional trades.
Kim Ji-young, who was nominated by Woori Bank as a compensation player for free agent Kim Jong-un (Hanawon Q) on April 30, was transferred to Shinhan Bank less than a day later. On the other hand, Yoo Seung-hee, who had been active at Shinhan Bank for 7 seasons from 2016, will contribute to Woori Bank’s successive winning seasons from the next season. Shinhan Bank chose Kim Ji-young’s activity and speed, and Woori Bank chose Yoo Seung-hee’s experience and outside shots.
Kim Ji-young, chosen as the successor of veteran Lee Kyung-eun
In 2013, Kim Ji-young, who was active as a member of Inseong Girls’ High School’s national competition with 4 crowns, started her professional life by being nominated by Hana 1Q in the 2nd round, 3rd place (9th overall) in the 2015-2016 season rookie draft. She is being pushed back by tall prospects taller than 180cm, such as Yoon Ye-bin (Samsung Life Insurance) of Onyang Girls’ High School and Jin An (BNK Some) of Suwon Girls’ High School.
Kim Ji-young only played 4 games in the 2015-2016 season, but she played 34 games in the 2016-2017 season, digesting 24 minutes and 27 seconds, scoring 5.89 points, 1.54 rebounds and 1.83 assists. In particular, on November 14, 2016, in a match against KDB Life Winners (now BNK), she surprised basketball fans by scoring a double clutch following a Euro step, which is rarely seen in women’s basketball.
However, Kim Ji-young showed slow growth over the next two seasons, and seemed to be pushed back by position competitors such as Kim I-seul and Seo Soo-bin. Kim Ji-young, who seemed to be losing her position in the team, recorded 6.89 points, 2.89 rebounds and 4.43 assists in 28 games in the 2021-2022 season when Kim I-seul retired and Kang Gye-ri (Shinhan Bank) moved the team. Her Kim Ji-young broke her best performance since her debut with her 6.80 points, 3.17 rebounds, 3.93 assists and 1.47 steals, averaging 28 minutes and 20 seconds in her 2022-2023 season.
After the season ended, Kim Ji-young, who was nominated by Woori Bank as Kim Jong-un’s compensation player, was traded in a Shinhan Bank uniform in less than a day. In fact, Shinhan Bank has national guard Lee Kyung-eun, who was selected for the national team to participate in the Asian Cup in June. However, as Lee Kyung-eun is the second oldest player in the league after Kim Han-byeol (BNK), Shinhan Bank desperately needed a young point guard to assist Lee.
Kim Ji-young is a player who boasts speed and activity that stands out throughout the league. If he only compensates for his 3-point shooting percentage, which is only 24.6% for his career, he could grow into a better enough player. Right now, he will compete with Gye-Ri Kang as backup guard for Lee Kyeong-Eun, but in the long term, Ji-Young Kim should grow into Shinhan Bank’s starting point guard to succeed Kyeong-Eun Lee. Will Shinhan Bank’s winning streak, which recruited Kim Ji-young through a trade, be remembered as an excellent choice in the future?
Yoo Seung-hee, who suffered frequent injuries, will Kim Jong-un fill the vacancy?
In the 2012 rookie draft, Yoo Seung-hee, who joined Samsung Life Insurance as the third overall pick after Kang I-seul (KB) and Choi I-sam (Woori Bank), transferred to Shinhan Bank in December 2016 through a 3:3 trade. Yoo Seung-hee, who has been attracting attention as the next-generation ace of Shinhan Bank to assist ace Kim Dan-bi (Woori Bank), suffered a cruciate ligament injury while participating in the Park Shin-ja Cup in 2018, and was injured again in the same part in a practice game in 2019, and has been in the field for two seasons. filtered
However, Yoo Seung-hee, who returned to the court in the 2020-2021 season, recorded 6.03 points, 2.63 rebounds and 1.73 assists, and in the 2021-2022 season, which was active as a main player, he performed best after his debut with 11.97 points, 5.50 rebounds and 3.30 assists. Fans’ affection for Yoo Seung-hee was even greater because he overcame two major injuries and returned to become a key player at Shinhan Bank. In the 2022-2023 season, Yoo Seung-hee played an active role as a key player for Shinhan Bank along with transfer students Sonia Kim and Jin-young Kim.
However, Yoo Seung-hee, who had a bad back and elbows, could not return to the court until the playoffs after the match against Hanawon Q on February 23rd. No matter how good his skills are, a player with frequent injuries cannot be highly evaluated, and eventually Shinhan Bank used Yoo Seung-hee as a trade card to reinforce the point guard. From Woori Bank’s point of view, Kim Ji-young, Kim Jong-un’s compensation player, was traded for Yoo Seung-hee, so as a result, Yoo Seung-hee will fill the vacancy of Kim Jong-un next season.바카라사이트
Frequent injuries are obviously a fatal factor for Yoo Seung-hee, but if there are no injury issues, Yoo Seung-hee is a resource that can be of great help to Woori Bank’s strategy. He has a good outside shot, recording a 33.8% 3-point shot success rate even in poor physical condition in the 2022-2023 season, and has recorded a high 50% 2-point shot success rate in the last two seasons. In addition, it has an auxiliary reading ability that can reduce the burden of Park Hye-jin and Park Ji-hyun, so it is very useful on the court.
At Woori Bank, there are not a few players who have a relationship with Yoo Seung-hee, including Kim Dan-bi, who worked with Shinhan Bank for a long time, Go A-ra, who lived with Samsung Life Insurance, Choi Lee-sam, who was a draft mate, and Park Da-jeong, who was a trade partner. It means that Woori Bank is a team with a very good environment for Yoo Seung-hee to adapt. Attention is focusing on whether Yoo Seung-hee, who will replace veteran Kim Jong-un, who left for free agency, will be a good puzzle piece for Woori Bank’s ‘back-to-back championship’ challenge.
