Seoul SK was the only player in the KBL that did not sign an Asian quarter player this season. As it is late, we want to set a clear standard and recruit.

SK coach Jeon Hee-chul (50) was asked about recruiting Asian quarter players ahead of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball 5th round home game against Hyundai Mobis held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul on the 7th.

From the 2022-2023 season, as it became possible to recruit Filipino players through the Asian quota, each club recruited a large number of them. Ethan Albano (DB), Ronjay Avarientos (Hyundai Mobis), and Lens Abando (KGC) have been performing well since the beginning of the season. Also, Justin Gutang (LG), who went through a period of adaptation, is gradually melting into the league.

In addition, KCC recruited Jeffrey Epistola and KT recruited Days Ildefonso over the next year. Including Christian David (Samsung), who left the team without even playing a game, nine clubs are using the Asian quota.

However, SK is the only one that is not even trying to recruit players. Of course, even so, as of the 7th, the win rate was 0.579 (22 wins, 16 losses), making excellent results, and the team scored 1st place (average 83.5 points), but there was no choice but to remain regretful.

Coach Jeon said, “I’m looking into it,” but said, “After last season, I was so busy that I didn’t even recognize it.” It was because the first task for SK, the ‘defending champion’, was to finish the internal arrangements such as the salary cap. He then confessed, “I looked for it even then, but it didn’t catch my eye.”

At the same time, coach Jeon said, “I looked into it in the middle and came to the conclusion that ‘Let’s not bring in an ambiguous player’.” He showed a skeptical reaction, saying, “There are no players who come in later on.”

However, he did not mean that he would not sign Filipino players in the future. Director Jeon said, “I think I will use (Philippine Asian Quarter) next year,” leaving room for it. 토토사이트

After winning the combined championship last season, SK faltered in the beginning of this season. However, with the return of Choi Jun-yong (29), who left due to an injury, and Choi Seong-won (28), who finished military service, they started to rebound. On the 7th, Gyeonggi-do won 73-68, and is closely chasing Hyundai Mobis by 0.5 games.

It was SK that could have flown higher if only a Filipino player was added. However, SK is taking a cautious step for the next season by knocking on a stone bridge.
