KCC kicked out Jefferson, who was caught in a controversy over sabotage.
Jeonju KCC will face off against 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Suwon KT in round 5 at Suwon KT Sonicboom Arena on the 12th. However, only Laguna was in KCC’s entry that day, and Lone University Hollis Jefferson was not. How did it happen?
KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin said, “Didn’t you slow down two games in a row? so sent I couldn’t stand it,” he said, officially announcing Jefferson’s exit.
Recently, Jefferson has been embroiled in a sabotage controversy. In the match against Changwon LG on the 5th, he played 8 minutes and 22 seconds and did not attempt a single field goal. In the match against Hyundai Mobis in Ulsan on the 9th, he only managed 1 minute and 16 seconds. He definitely seemed unmotivated to play.
Coach Jeon Chang-jin said, “I slowed down during the game. First time I’ve seen a player like this. He didn’t even decide on a replacement player and sent it away.”
With Jefferson out of the way, KCC will have to hold out alone for the time being. The role of domestic players such as Lee Jong-hyun and Kim Sang-gyu is even more important. On this day, instead of Jefferson, Park Se-jin, who mainly played in the D-League, joined. 메이저사이트
Director Jeon Chang-jin said, “Lee Jong-hyun’s role is necessary. It won’t be long without Laguna for both defense and offense, but the key is how well he endures.”
Meanwhile, Jefferson, who drew attention as a foreign player who played 305 games in the NBA, left Korea lonely. He averaged 11 minutes and 28 seconds in 38 games this season, averaging 10.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists.
