It was a mixed draft with expectations and reversals.
The KBL Korea Professional Basketball Federation held the 2022 KBL domestic rookie draft at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul on the 21st. According to the results of the lottery for the rookie draft on the 14th, Suwon KT, Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, Changwon LG, Seoul Samsung, Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, Busan KCC, Wonju DB, Goyang Sono, Seoul SK, and Anyang Jeonggwanjang took the nomination in order.
KT, which has the first nomination right in about five years since 2018, has appointed Moon Jung-hyun of Korea University as expected. Moon Jung-hyun has excellent skills to join the national basketball team at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. With a 194cm forward, he has excellent passing sense as well as scoring ability. However, the speed is lower than that of a forward and there is a weakness in the outer shot, which must be overcome.
Moon Jung-hyun said, "My mother who will be watching at the hospital, you must be crying, so don't cry," adding, "Now I will make you happy and make a lot of money." I am also grateful to my father for silently taking care of me," he said. "There will be no one happier than me today," he continued. I will change it to happiness that KT can win in the future," he said.
Hyundai Mobis, which holds the second nomination, named Korea University guard Park Moo-bin. Park is a good guard in both game coordination and scoring. He has attracted attention for his long shooting distance since he was a student at Hongdae. In this year's college league, he averaged 14.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 3.4 assists, and was named the final MVP.
Changwon LG, which had the luck of taking the third place nomination with a 5% probability, then won the Yonsei University shooter Yoo Ki-sang. Yoo Ki-sang is a player who stands out for his quick shooting ability. Yang Joon-seok, a former Yonsei University player who received the first nomination as an early entry last season, will be reunited at LG.
Cho Joon-hee joined Seoul Samsung as the fourth-ranked player in the first round. Korea Basketball Federation (KBL)
Samsung, which only had the fourth-place pick despite being the lowest in the last season, chose Cho Joon-hee, an ordinary draft tee. The unexpected place name also made the hall shake. Cho Joon-hee, who started playing basketball in Canada, is also from IMG Academy, a promising American academy. Cho Joon-hee received good reviews in this draft combine and tryout. Despite being a guard of 187.2cm, he ran a max vertical jump and recorded 91.20cm in the high jump, ranking first overall.
Korea Gas Corporation picked Shin Ju-young, Korea University's third-year big man, KCC picked Chung-Ang University guard Lee Ju-young, DB picked Dongguk University guard Park Seung-jae, and Sono picked Sungkyunkwan University shooter Park Jong-ha. SK, the ninth-ranked runner-up in last season's second-place team, then picked Dankook University's third-year Lee Kyung-do, and Jeong Kwan-jang's last team picked Dankook University's Na Sung-ho, and the first-round nomination was completed.
In the second round, which was conducted in reverse order in the first round, Jeong Kwan-jang chose Hanyang University third-year forward Pyo Seung-bin, SK second-ranked Kim Gun-woo, Yonsei University center, Sono third-ranked Sungkyunkwan University guard Min Gi-nam, and DB fourth-ranked Konkuk University forward Choi Seung-bin.
The fifth-ranked KCC called Sungkyunkwan University Jeong Bae-kwon, the sixth-ranked Korea Gas Corporation called Sangmyung University Kim Tae-ho, the seventh-ranked Samsung called out Kim Geun-hyun, a former Sungkyunkwan University student who failed to enter early last year, the eighth-ranked LG called out Lee Kang-hyun, the third-year big man at Chung-Ang University, the ninth-ranked Hyundai Mobis called Konkuk University forward Park Sang-woo, and the 10th-ranked KT called Dankook University forward Lee Doo-ho.
In the second round, all 10 players were nominated by the club without giving up their nominations, but they did not use all of their nominations in the third and fourth rounds. A total of 30 people participated in this draft, and 20 were selected by the club. The nomination rate is 66.67 percent.
Players designated on this day will be able to participate from the 2023 MG Saemaul Geumgo KBL Cup, which will be held in Gunsan from the 8th of next month. KBL plans to hold an orientation for new players on the 22nd. In the orientation, game rules, doping, and anti-fraud education are conducted.
