The first round of free agency has come to a close with Choi Joon-yong, the biggest name left on the free agent market, landing in the arms of KCC.
Choi Jun-yong, the regular season MVP of the 2021-2022 season, expressed his ambition to win a championship in a KCC uniform.

The next season of professional basketball has become even more intriguing as a number of big stars, including Choi Jun-yong and Oh Se-geun, have switched teams with the potential to shake up the entire game.
In particular, SK reunited Kim Sun-hyung and Oh Se-geun, who created a 52-game winning streak during their time at Chung-Ang University,
Heo Woong, and Lee Seung-hyun, and KCC with Choi Jun-yong, are expected to be the ‘absolute top two’ and compete for the title.
However, with such an ace group of players, it will be a challenge for them to organize themselves.
