Seo Min-soo comeback, Kim Young-hyun recruited… Professional basketball DB, player base ‘real reinforcement’

Depending on the transfer of professional basketball free agents (FA) this year, there is room for a big change in the composition of the new season. In the 2021-2022 season, regular league MVP Choi Jun-yong (Seoul SK), Lee Dae-seong (Daegu Korea Gas Corporation), Oh Se-geun Moon Seong-gon (Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation), and Yang Hong-seok (Suwon KT) came to the market.

DB,스포츠토토 who failed to advance to the postseason by staying in 7th place last season, quickly began to reinforce their power. First, we focused on strengthening the player base.

DB signed a three-year contract with forward Seo Min-soo, who played for Changwon LG, for a total of 200 million won in compensation (20 million won in incentives). In addition, guard Kim Young-hyeon, who was named as one of the top 5 defensive players for Ulsan Hyundai Mobis last season, was recruited under the condition of a contract period of 3 years and a total compensation of 150 million won (20 million won in incentives).

Seo Min-soo is returning to his parent team. He made his debut in Wonju Dongbu (now DB) in 2015 and wore an LG uniform as a compensation player nomination following the recruitment of free agent Kim Jong-gyu in 2018. DB played an active part as a key member in the 2017-2018 season, which caused a sensation with the activities of Deonte Button and Doo Kyung-min.

Seo Min-soo is a forward with an official height of 197cm and can play the 4th position. As a result, the range of player management of DB, which has authentic big men such as Kim Jong-gyu and Kang Sang-jae, has been expanded.

Seo Min-soo’s performance has declined somewhat over the past two seasons, but he is a resource that can boost the team’s speed with a high level of activity. His career 3-point success rate is only 30.0%, but in the 2020-2021 season, he made 37.9% 3-pointers (average 1.2 successful).  

Kim Young-hyeon, who made his debut at Hyundai Mobis in 2013, was in full bloom last season. Although his personal record (average 3.1 points, field goal success rate 34.8%) did not stand out, he was moderated by coach Dong-Hyun Cho based on his excellent interpersonal defense skills and understanding of defense.

Hyundai Mobis had a special guard Ronjay Avarientos from the Philippines. It was Kim Young-hyun who balanced the backcourt while playing with Avarientos, who had a weak defense.

In the DB, there are many guards with a strong tendency to attack, such as Doo Kyung-min and Lee Seon Albano. Here, Kim Young-hyun is expected to be a good puzzle piece that makes the team composition more diverse.
