Lee Hyun-joong (22, 202 cm), who is trying to advance to the NBA, joined the affiliated G League team.
On the 22nd (Korean time), the Santa Cruz Warriors, a G League team affiliated with the Golden State Warriors, added Lee Hyun-joong’s name to their roster on their official website. 온라인카지노
The club introduced Lee Hyeon-joong as a Korean-born player with a height of 6 feet 7 inches and a weight of 210 pounds. His shirt number is 28.
In the case of players who did not make it straight to the NBA, there are cases where they are called up by scouts through their G-League performance.
It is the fourth Korean player to play in the lower league of the NBA, following Ha Seung-jin, Bang Seong-yoon (retired), and Lee Dae-seong (Korea Gas Corporation).
Lee Hyun-joong entered the NBA draft last year after attending Davidson University, which produced NBA star Stephen Curry (Golden State), but was not nominated due to bad news of injury.
About two weeks before the draft, he suffered an injury to his ankle bone and ligaments and was on the operating table.
After returning to Korea and undergoing a painful rehabilitation program for half a year, he returned to the United States last January.
Since Lee Hyun-joong is taller than 200 cm and has a very clear shooting advantage, there are many who believe that he has a chance to advance to the NBA, even considering that he is a relatively inferior Asian player in terms of physical condition and athletic ability.
Previously, Hyunjoong Lee had established himself as the first option for attack in the national team.
The 2022-2023 season G League, which started in November last year, will end next month. Santa Cruz will have its last game against Texas on the 26th of next month.
