The FA market fluctuated. The focus of the chain movement was Choi Jun-yong.

On the 21st, Jeonju KCC officially announced that they had signed a contract with FA Choi Jun-yong. The terms of the contract announced by KCC are a contract period of 5 years and 600 million won (annual salary of 420 million won and 180 million won).

Choi Jun-yong only played 26 games last season due to an injury. He suffered an injury at the end of round 5 and missed all of the playoffs following round 6. Seoul SK showed their potential to rise to the championship match despite the absence of Choi Jun-yong, but ended up finishing runner-up with 3 wins and 4 losses after a close match with Anyang KGC.

Last season had a long hiatus, but Choi Jun-yong is a forward who showed his true value in the 2021-2022 season. He played in all 54 regular league games and averaged 16 points, 1.6 3-pointers, 5.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.1 blocked shots, and was named MVP of the regular league. With a height of 200 cm, he has shown that he is highly versatile in both offense and defense, combining quick attack development and advanced defense.

SK and Choi Jun-yong, who won the championship twice together, made a ‘determination to break up’ from the moment the FA market opened. He did meet, but both sides were determined to start over. Turning their eyes to the outside, SK suddenly recruited Oh Se-geun, who was like the symbol of Anyang KGC, and this was no different from officially declaring a breakup with Choi Jun-yong.

Initially, the team that emerged as a promising destination for Choi Jun-yong was Seoul Samsung. A team based in the province also discussed signing and trading with SK, but there was a big difference in position. On the other hand, discussions with Samsung have progressed. They were coordinating negotiations by exchanging specific conditions related to signatures and trades.토토사이트

Another airflow was formed on the 18th when the contract between SK and Oh Se-geun was officially announced. With KCC joining the competition as a latecomer, Choi Jun-yong has more options to decide. In the end, Choi Jun-yong chose KCC after negotiations. As a result, KCC is challenging the presidency by forming a splendid team of players, including Song Gyo-chang and Choi Jun-yong, who are discharged from the existing Heo Woong and Lee Seung-hyun.

Meanwhile, Choi Jun-yong received 550 million won in compensation last season, which is tied for 8th place in the compensation ranking. This is the subject to which compensation is applied when transferring to FA. SK, the original team, must choose between 50% of the compensation (225 million won) + compensation players (excluding 4 protected players) or 200% of the compensation (1.1 billion won).
