Samsung, which was placed at the bottom, raised the number of wins. Long shooter Lim Dong-seop (33, 198cm) and LG guard Choi Seung-wook (29, 191cm) were exchanged.
On the 11th, Seoul Samsung and Changwon LG carried out a one-on-one trade for Lim Dong-seop and Choi Seung-wook. This is the second trade of this season. The two teams agreed on a trade on the 10th, and notified each player on the morning of the 11th.
It was a trade that reflected the will of both teams’ command towers. Coach Eun Hee-seok wanted to strengthen the defense, and LG needed to improve its 3-point shooting competitiveness. LG was recording 6.6 successful 3-point shots (8th) and a success rate of 20.3% (9th). 토토사이트
To Samsung, Lim Dong-seop was a ‘sore finger’. Lim Dong-seop, who received attention as a tall shooter while attending Chung-Ang University, was a one-club man who played exclusively for Samsung after being nominated as the second pick in the 2012-2013 rookie draft. He recorded a career-high average of 10.5 points and 2.2 three-pointers in 50 games in the 2016-2017 season, contributing to Samsung’s advancement to the championship match.
However, Lim Dong-seop could not grow further due to repeated injuries, and this season, he averaged 4.2 points and 2.8 rebounds in 16 minutes and 7 seconds in 29 games. Samsung carried out the trade under the judgment that the new team would be an opportunity for Lim Dong-seop as well as refreshing the atmosphere.
On the other hand, Choi Seung-wook has been the type of player who takes on dirty work since his days at Jeonju KCC. He was discharged in November of last year, but he only digested an average of 3 minutes and 45 seconds in 7 games due to a lot of redundant resources within the team. As Samsung is having difficulty using bench members due to a line injury, Choi Seung-wook is expected to be given more playing time with the new team.
