Woori Bank, who gave away free agent Kim Jong-un, nominated Kim Ji-young as a reward player… Eom Seo-i went to Hanawon Q
Woori Bank, which gave free agent Kim Jong-un to Hanawon Q, nominated Kim Ji-young as a compensation player.
On the 30th, WKBL announced the results of the exercise of the free agent (FA) compensation nomination rights between Woori Bank in Asan and Hana 1Q in Bucheon. Kim Ji-young (25, 171cm) heads to Woori Bank, and Um Seo-i (22, 176cm) wears a Hana One Q uniform.
Kim Jong-un, who was a member of Woori Bank, returned to his former team, Hana 1Q, after obtaining FA qualification this year. Last season, Kim Jong-un’s contribution was 17th, and Hana 1Q had to give Woori Bank 200% of the contract amount or one compensation player excluding 4 protected players including Kim Jong-un. And Woori Bank chose Kim Ji-young as the compensation player.ㅋㅋㅋ벳
Kim Ji-young, a graduate of Inseong Girls’ High School, wore a Hana One Q uniform in the 2nd round and 3rd place at the 2016 WKBL New Player Selection. He drew attention as a guard whose strengths were his quick attacks and breakthroughs using his quick feet. He played 8 seasons in Hana 1Q alone and recorded 4.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 212 games, averaging 18 minutes and 54 seconds.
In his last season, he showed a more developed play by opening his eyes to the play and defense that saved his teammates. He played in all 30 regular league games, averaging 6.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 28 minutes and 20 seconds. At the awards ceremony, he was awarded the Best Player Award with the support of the referee.
Currently, Woori Bank’s guards include national representatives Park Hye-jin and Park Ji-hyun. Therefore, we plan to use Kim Ji-young as a trade card. Jiyoung Kim’s follow-up trade is expected to be announced after May 1st.
On the other hand, Hana 1Q, which gave Kim Ye-jin to KB Stars, chose Eom Seo-yi as the compensation player. Eom Seo-i is a forward resource who was nominated by Busan BNK Some in the 3rd place in the 1st round in the 2019-2020 WKBL New Player Selection. He did not shine at BNK and KB Stars, but he is expected to be given a chance at 1Q, as he has a weakness in the forward position.
