In the men’s professional basketball free agent (FA) market, contracts are emerging one after another. Guard Lee Ho-hyeon (31) and forward Bae Byung-jun (33) signed free agent contracts with the 2nd and 3rd this year.
Jeonju KCC announced on the 15th that it had signed a contract with FA Lee Ho-hyun. Lee Ho-hyun hit the jackpot with a 4-year contract period and a total salary of 240 million won (168 million won in salary + 72 million won in incentives) in his first season. Lee Ho-hyun, who belonged to Samsung in Seoul, paid 60 million won for the 2022-2023 season.
Lee Ho-hyun, who made his professional debut in the 2014-2015 season, was mainly a backup member. However, he decorated the 2022-2023 season with a career high. He played in 47 regular league games, averaging 25 minutes and 52 seconds, and set personal best records in each category with 8.3 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists. KCC, which was worried about the absence of a point guard, strengthened its strength by signing with Lee Ho-hyun early in the free agent market.안전놀이터
Bae Byeong-jun, who contributed to Anyang KGC’s overall victory as a backup shooter, also signed early. Bae Byeong-joon chose to stay at KGC for a three-year contract period and a total compensation of 200 million won in the first season (annual salary of 180 million won + incentive of 20 million won).
Bae Byeong-jun was always recognized for his potential, but he rarely showed his presence in the season due to a back injury. Ahead of the 2022-2023 season, he signed a contract with KGC for a one-year, 90 million won fee in the free agency market, and showed off his outstanding shooting sense as opportunities to participate increased. He averaged 6.1 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 19 minutes and 35 seconds in 46 regular league games. He contributed to KGC winning both the combined championship and the 2023 East Asian Super League (EASL) Champions Week by operating one three-store per game and adding strength from the outskirts. On the 13th, he married Go A-ra, a member of Asan Woori Bank, a women’s professional basketball team, and is currently on a honeymoon.
