Last season, Avarientos created a new sensation in the KBL. He caught the eyes of his fans by displaying his brilliant dribbling, excellent pass skills, and even his temper as a troubleshooter in a match. As a member of Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, he averaged 13.6 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 4.8 assists in 51 regular league games. As a result, Jung Kyu-ri won the Rookie of the Year award at the award ceremony. He was the first rookie of the year award from the Philippines.

In the offseason, however, Avarientos suddenly refused to join the team. Starting this season, the KBL is presumed to have demanded the termination of his contract as the team limited the player’s annual salary to 160,000 U.S. dollars. Eventually, Hyundai Mobis officially announced him as a retiree, and Avarientos moved to the Shinshu Brave Warriors in the B. League in Japan.

Abarientos visited Okinawa, Japan, on Tuesday. He was there to participate in the 2024 B. League All-Star Game between the Asian All-Star and the Rising Star of Japan, which will take place at the Okinawa Arena on Tuesday. He met him one day before the game and had a conversation with him.

When asked why he left Korea, Avarientos said, “My agent and I were talking to the coaching staff of Hyundai Mobis about our plans and plans for the new season. In the process, the KBL Asian Quarter salary regulation changed. I don’t know why they did that, but honestly, I was offended. I made the hardest decision of my life after much thought. That doesn’t mean I broke up with the club badly. I had enough conversations with manager Cho Dong-hyun. I liked the fans of Korea and Hyundai Mobis. If I get a free agent (FA) qualification in Japan, I would like to go back to Korea again.”

In this season, Avarientos recorded 8.7 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 2.5 assists while playing 14 minutes and 54 seconds on average in 24 regular league games. He had a hard time adjusting to the league in the early days of this season, but has been stabilizing his performance little by little recently. Then, what do you think is the difference between the KBL and the B.League.

“Personally, I don’t think there is much difference. Their playing styles are similar. The biggest difference is that the B.League only has two foreign players and Korea only has one player. I think all of them are similar except for this,” Avarientos said.

Avarientos is currently classified as a retiree. Therefore, it is only possible to register as a KBL player one year after being announced as a retiree. In other words, you can return to the KBL in the future according to your will.

“I don’t want to say sorry to my Korean fans. I was so happy and I only have grateful memories. I received a lot of love as an Asian quarter player. I miss Hyundai Mobis fans so much in particular. The same goes for the coaching staff and players. I’m not sure, but I hope to meet them again someday,” Avarientos said to his Korean fans.
