Oh Se-geun, the best power forward in professional basketball, is shaking the basketball court by transferring to Seoul SK.
On the 18th, free agent (FA) Oh Se-geun left Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation, where he had been working since his professional debut. The SK team announced, “We signed a contract with Oh Se-geun for a three-year contract period and a total of 750 million won in the first year (annual salary of 550 million won and incentives of 200 million won).”
Oh Se-geun was nominated by Ginseng Corporation as the first overall pick in the 2011 rookie draft and led Ginseng Corporation to the championship match in the 2011-2012 season, the first year of his debut, and so far, has only worn four championship rings.
As he entered his late 30s,메이저놀이터 he heard criticism that his prime was over, but in 52 regular league games in the 2022-2023 season, he recorded an average of 13.1 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists, leading Ginseng Corporation to first place.

In particular, in the championship match against SK, he flew around with an average of 19.1 points, 10 rebounds and 2.4 assists, leading Ginseng Corporation to the overall championship and being selected as the MVP, opening a new heyday.
Although he obtained FA qualification, as he reached the age of looking forward to retirement, the prospect of remaining as a ‘legend’ of Ginseng Corporation was dominant, like Yang Hee-jong, a team senior who retired honorably after leaving a permanent retirement rather than a new challenge.
That is why the breakup between Oh Se-geun and Ginseng Corporation is a big shock. After announcing the contract with SK, Oh Se-geun said on his social media, “Leaving Ginseng Corporation, which has devoted everything so far, was a decision that was not easy enough to worry about staying up all night with open eyes for several days.” I felt a great disappointment and collapse while negotiating FA,” hinting that there was a big difference in position with Ginseng Corporation.
Oh Se-geun said, “In the meantime, I had a lot of thoughts and worries through contact with SK, who showed an active interest in me, and at the end, I decided to transfer.”
Ginseng Corporation achieved an integrated championship and dominated professional basketball, but became the biggest ‘loser’ in the transfer market. Moon Seong-gon, considered the best defender, transferred to Suwon kt, Byun Jun-hyung enlisted, and even Oh Se-geun, who could be called the pillar of the team, left, losing key players all at once.

On the other hand, SK, which recruited Oh Se-geun, built the power to regain the championship trophy lost to Ginseng Corporation in the championship match next season.
In particular, SK, led by Kim Seon-hyung, joined Oh Se-geun, making the best guard and power forward in professional basketball match. Although he lost the championship to Ginseng Corporation led by Oh Se-geun, Kim Seon-hyung also won the regular league MVP by recording an average of 16.3 points and 6.8 assists in 54 regular league games.
Oh Se-geun and Kim Seon-hyeong were already a ‘combi’ that matched their hands and feet during college. The two set a record of 52 consecutive wins at Chung-Ang University from November 2006 to November 2008, and in 2010, they led Chung-Ang University to win the first year of the College Basketball League.
In the same year, with Oh Se-geun going to Ginseng Corporation and Kim Seon-hyeong to SK with the first and second picks in the rookie draft, they led professional basketball as good rivals, and then wore the same uniform again after 12 years.
However, when SK recruited Oh Se-geun, it went through the process of breaking up with Choi Jun-yong, who also obtained FA qualification. Although he lost his presence last season due to injuries, competition for recruitment is expected to be fierce due to his excellent natural skills.
Attention is focusing on whether Oh Se-geun and Kim Seon-hyeong, who reunited dramatically in the twilight of their careers, will lift the championship trophy together on the professional stage.
