Negotiations for free agency recipients have been completed. Now, only the compensation process remains.
On the 27th, WKBL announced the results of negotiations between the 3rd round of FA negotiations and the original team. Lee Jung-hyun (Hana One Q) and Park Ji-eun (KB Stars) decided to retire after negotiations.
Lee Jung-hyun, a big man from Cheongju Girls’ High School, was traded to Chuncheon Woori Bank (now Asan Woori Bank) according to the trade clause right after he was named to Bucheon Shinsegae as the second overall pick in the 2011 WKBL Freshman Selection. It was expected that he would lead the reconstruction of Woori Bank’s famous family together with Lee Seung-ah.
However, Lee Jung-hyun’s growth was below expectations. He played an average of 9 minutes and 42 seconds in 28 games in the 2011-2012 season, but after that, due to a chronic knee injury, the opportunity to stand on the court itself was small. Lee Jeong-hyun retired in 2017 after going through KDB Life Insurance in Guri.
Lee Jung-hyun, who later played for the unemployment team Gimcheon City Hall, returned to WKBL wearing a Hana 1Q uniform in 2019, but did not get many opportunities even after his return. In his 83 career games, he averaged 8:12 2.9 points and 1.7 rebounds.ㅋㅋㅋ벳
Park Ji-eun, a big man from Suwon Girls’ High School, also chose to retire. Park Ji-eun, who was selected in the 4th place in the 2014 New Player Selection Ceremony, has built her career at KB Stars. He mainly served as Park Ji-soo’s backup, leaving 1.1 points and 0.9 rebounds for an average of 5 minutes and 29 seconds in 76 career games.
With this, all negotiations for those who have obtained FA qualifications have been completed. Only the compensation for the FA transfer remained. Hana One Q, which recruited Kim Jong-un, must hand over 200% of the contract amount to Asan Woori Bank or one compensation player excluding 4 protected players. Hana 1Q is also about to recruit Kim Ye-jin (KB Stars) as a counterbalance to her departure.
