Veteran guard Lee Gyeong-eun (36), who became a free agent (FA) after the 2022-2023 season, remained at Shinhan Bank Incheon, his original club. His contract period was 2 years, and he was guaranteed an active service extension until at least the 2024-2025 season on the condition of a total annual salary of 140 million won.

During the first round of FA negotiations, which lasted until the 10th, Lee Kyung-eun was the only player who renewed the contract with the original team. This proves that the club’s trust in Lee Kyung-eun was great.

Lee Kyung-eun made her professional debut in 2006 and has played 504 games so far this season, playing an average of 26 minutes and 42 seconds, recording 8.1 points, 3.28 assists and 2.88 rebounds. In the 2018-2019 season and the 2019-2020 season, which were his first seasons after moving to Shinhan Bank, his average score stayed in the 5-point range, and his playing time was less than 20 minutes. He has been plagued by injuries both large and small.

However, in the 2020-2021 season, he played in all games (30 games) and succeeded in reviving with an average of 8 points and 2.83 assists, and this season, he played all games and scored an average of 7.77 points and 3.43 assists. His 3.43 assists are nearly double his last season’s (1.83 assists). It literally means ‘rejuvenation’. Because it is a team that has experienced both setbacks and resurgences, he is also very attached.

In a phone call with Sports Donga on the 11th, Lee Kyung-eun said, “The manager and coaches gave good words, and the club also gave good suggestions.” “I had nothing more to think about. He only thought that he wanted to finish his career as a player at Shinhan Bank, and he signed quickly.” He continued, “What I prepared in the off-season comes out during the season, but before the 2022-2023 season, I did almost all of the off-season exercises. I think it came out in the regular season that I digested training steadily.” 바카라사이트

The club early on nominated Lee Kyung-eun as the captain for the 2023-2024 season. Lee Kyung-eun said, “At first, I said (to take the captaincy) that it was not easy. He sometimes took a break from sports due to injury, so I thought about whether I could give the players faith.” The biggest thing he said was that he had colleagues he could work with.” “(Lee) Kyung-eun has played a lot of roles as the team’s leader,” explained Shinhan Bank manager Guna Dan Dan. “He knows the team well and his juniors follow him very well.”

The will is too different. I want to present more victories to the fans. Above all, the goal is to make Shinhan Bank reborn as a strong team through steady performance. Lee Kyung-eun said, “I always want to show a steady image. He said, “I want to increase my playing time every year without getting sick. Going on the court is preparing to win. My goal is to win more and play basketball.”
