“Oh Se-geun was a very attractive card.”
On the afternoon of the 18th, Seoul SK signed a contract with Oh Se-geun, the largest free agent, for a total of 750 million won for a three-year contract. With this, the ‘Chungang University Duo’ of the myth of 52 consecutive wins leading to Kim Seon-hyung and Oh Se-geun was reunited.
Oh Se-geun is still the best player in KBL. In the last 2022-23 season, Anyang KGC was the biggest force that was able to achieve the integrated championship. The only player who competed with him was Kim Seon-hyung. SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol has now become a person who can use both of those players.
In a phone interview with MK Sports, Jeon said, “I watched the FA market and had many concerns. In fact, (Oh) Se-geun cannot be a priority. don’t you know everything Because he played long in KGC. But things change when you play FA. Se-geun was such a case, and he was able to approach him because he did not think about recruiting at all.”
He continued, “To be honest, I didn’t know how to transfer (laughs). Since Se-geun is a player without compensation, it was also the best card for us. Because of his recent good grades, he just got out of the draft or FA, rather than reinforcing his power. In this situation, Se-geun was a very attractive card.”
Director Jeon also thought about the future. He actually judged the 2023-24 season as a time to reorganize the team rather than ‘win now’. Although Kim Seon-hyung is alive and Ahn Young-jun is returning, it was difficult to guarantee the success of the 2022-23 season again. Of course, it is true that they have made great strides.안전놀이터
Coach Jeon said, “In a situation where I missed several cards, when I looked at the FA market next year and the year after, there weren’t as many catches as this time. If so, I couldn’t miss Se-geun. He thought he had to catch it unconditionally. It is a part shared with the club.”
Of course, even if he embraced Oh Se-geun, not everything was resolved. He is a player who must manage his playing time thoroughly. Why he performed the best in the 2022-23 season. However, the former coach showed confidence. He said, “SK is a team that is really good at taking care of their bodies (laughs). We will do better in the next three years.”
