Forward Choi Jun-yong (29), the best player (MVP) in the professional basketball regular league in the 2021-2022 season, leaves Seoul SK, the professional debut team, for the first time and wears the Jeonju KCC uniform.

The KCC club announced on the 21st that it had recruited Choi Jun-yong, a free agent (FA), for a contract period of 5 years and a total compensation of 600 million won in the first year (annual salary of 420 million won and incentives of 180 million won).

It is the first time since his professional debut that Choi Jun-yong, who has been active as a signboard player after joining SK as the 2nd overall pick in the 2016 draft, is from Gyeongbok High School and Yonsei University.

In his first year of college, his potential was recognized enough to be selected as a national team member, but he was evaluated as “unfinished standby” in the pro, and he exploded his potential in the 2021-2022 season and reached his heyday.

He played in all 54 regular league games and averaged 16 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists, leading SK to take the lead and win the regular league MVP.

In the playoffs, he averaged 15.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists, leading SK to the combined championship.

However, in the 2022-2023 season, which was highly anticipated after winning the MVP award, he suffered bad news from injuries.

Suffering from plantar fasciitis, he was absent from the beginning of the season, but since November of last year, he suffered a bruise on his left heel during a game against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation on February 11 of this year, and was unable to play in the rest of the regular season or the playoffs at all.

He played in 26 games, averaging 32 minutes and 25 seconds, while averaging 12.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.8 assists.

The KCC club said, “The recruitment of Choi Jun-yong, who can play multiplayer in all positions, is expected to add height reinforcement, scoring power, and stability in the offense and defense balance.”

After finishing the regular season in 6th place in the 2022-2023 season, KCC, which was eliminated after losing 3 times in a row to SK in the playoffs in the 6th round, added Choi Jun-yong to colorful existing members such as Heo Woong, Lee Seung-hyun, and La Gun-ah, and became more powerful. In addition, during the season, even Song Gyo-chang, the regular league MVP for the 2020-2021 season, is discharged and returns.

Choi Jun-yong will hold a press conference at the KBL Center in Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the afternoon of the 22nd to reveal his thoughts and determination.
