Professional basketball team Jeonju KCC, which has a solid lineup with the addition of Choi Joon-yong, has acquired guard Jeon Tae-young (28) from Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation in exchange for forward Kim Sang-gyu (34).
On July 7, KCC announced that it had agreed to the trade with Ginseng Corporation.
KCC bolstered its guard lineup with Jeon. KCC was criticized for lacking a ball-handler last season. Jeon, who debuted in the 2017-2018 season, has only played 20 games in the first team, but he is a highly touted guard who was drafted by the Ginseng Corporation with the 10th pick in the first round of the 2017 rookie draft. He only played one game in the 2020-2021 season due to a military enlistment.
Ginseng added height. At over 2 meters tall, Kim Sang-kyu is a resource with an outside shot. After making his debut in the 2012-2013 season, Kim had his best season in 2021-2022, averaging 7.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 47 games. Last season, however, he averaged 2.5 points and 1.5 rebounds in 9:16 minutes in 31 games due to injury. Ginseng will fill the void left by the departure of Oh Seong-geun, Moon Sung-gon, and Ham Jun-hoo from the team. 안전놀이터
