A large number of players who suffered the pain of being kicked out of the KBL participate in the East Asian Super League (EASL).
A Filipino basketball official said on the 24th that PBA’s San Miguel and TNT have completed recruiting foreign players for the EASL to be held in Utsunomiya and Okinawa, Japan from March 1 to 5. In the PBA, only one foreign player plays in the Governor’s Cup and Commissioner’s Cup, but additionally reinforced the center in order to compete in EASL, where two players compete simultaneously.
TNT, where Ronde Hollis-Jefferson, who recently broke the contract with KCC, is playing, additionally recruited Daniel Oshepu (31, 208cm). Oshepu played for Seoul Samsung in the 2021-2022 season and was pulled out due to injury during the season. At that time, Samsung recruited Jackie Carmichael to replace Oshepu. TNT is in Group A with Seoul SK, and the two teams will clash on the 3rd. In SK, Jamil Warney and Leon Williams will compete at the same time. 토토사이트
San Miguel, where Cameron Clark is playing in the Governor’s Cup, signed Jesse Govan. Goban (27, 207 cm) signed a contract with Seoul Samsung ahead of the 2020-2021 season, but was replaced with Kennedy Mix due to other reasons (insufficient skills) during the season. Group B San Miguel will meet Anyang KGC on the 4th.
In addition to these, Andrew Nicholson (35, 206cm), who played as the main gun for Daegu Korea Gas Corporation last season, is in Bay Area Dragons (Group A), which is one of the candidates for the championship and is run by EASL, and Ryukyu Golden Kings (Japan, Group B). ) has Allen Durham (35, 198cm), who played for KT in the 2019-2020 season.
It is expected that it will be another fun to watch EASL to see players who played in the past KBL compete with domestic teams as members of other league teams.
