He chose ‘loyalty’ in the end. Professional basketball player Park Ji-hoon, who qualified as a free agent (FA), will remain with the Anyang Jungkwanjang.

The club announced on Wednesday that it has re-signed guard Park Ji-hoon for a three-year contract with a first-year salary of 550 million won ($101 million including incentives).

The team finished the regular season in ninth place and missed the playoffs in 2023-2024 due to injuries and 스포츠토토존 replacements of key players and foreign players.

However, despite the team’s struggles, Park had his best season in his professional basketball debut, averaging 12.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 4.4 assists in 29 minutes per game in 53 appearances, ranking third overall in KBL contribution (second among guards).

With the acquisition of Park Ji-hoon, Choi Sung-won will be able to build a strong guard lineup with Byun Jun-hyung, who will be discharged from the military in November.

“I have always considered Coach Yang Hee-jong as a role model, and I was most influenced by this decision,” Park said through the club, adding, “I will try to strengthen the cooperation with the existing players and recreate the glory of Anyang with Byun Jun-hyung and Han Seung-hee, who will join the team after their discharge in November.”
