Anyang KGC shooter Bae Byeong-jun (33) signed a new contract with the original team as a free agent (FA).
The KGC club said on the 15th, “We have agreed to sign a contract with Bae Byeong-jun for a contract period of 3 years and a fee of 200 million won (annual salary of 180 million won + incentive of 20 million won).”
Bae Byeong-joon, who started his pro career by joining Changwon LG in 2012, moved to KGC in June 2018.
Bae Byeong-joon, who grew up with coach Kim Seung-gi, transferred to Seoul SK through a trade with Woo Dong-hyun in May 2020 and enjoyed the joy of winning the combined championship in SK in the 2021-22 season. At that time, he defeated KGC in the championship match.
Bae Byeong-joon, who experienced his first victory in his debut, obtained qualification as a free agent (FA) after the end of the season, but chose to re-transfer to KGC instead of SK, where opportunities to participate were limited. Coincidentally, KGC was in a situation where the shooter position was vacant due to the transfer of Jeon Seong-hyeon (Goyang Day One).메이저놀이터
Bae Byung-jun, whose strengths were maximized under the active guidance of coach Kim Sang-sik, showed off his presence in defense and was nominated for the 2022-23 season’s Skill Development Award.
Entering the postseason, he contributed to the team’s championship with an accurate 3-point shot with a success rate of 42.9% in all 11 games throughout the playoffs (PO) and championship match.
As a result, the amount was stamped with a 120% increase from the previous 90 million won (annual salary of 80 million won + incentive of 10 million won).
A KGC official explained the reason for the renewal of the contract, saying, “Byung-Jun Bae spent a career high season with remarkable record improvement and self-management. He showed off his strength in the match with an accurate 3-point shot in the clutch situation while defending with strong pressure from the front line.”
Meanwhile, on the 13th, Bae Byeong-joon, who married last season’s women’s professional basketball (WKBL) champion Go A-ra of Asan Woori Bank, is currently enjoying a honeymoon.
