As Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation won the professional basketball championship in the 2022-2023 season, each team had no choice but to pay more attention to recruiting Asian quarter players.

Without Lens Abando, who joined this season through the Asian quota system, Ginseng Corporation would have lost the momentum to defeat Seoul SK in the championship match that went up to the 7th game in 14 years.

Abando raised an average of 10.1 points in 7 championship matches, especially in the 2nd and 3rd matches, taking advantage of its unique elasticity and bringing victory to Ginseng Corporation by adding 18 and 14 points each.

Even in the 7th game, where the fates of both teams were divided, he made two block shots only in the 4th quarter, which was the battleground, and Oh Se-geun and other big men added ‘height’ to the tired Ginseng Corporation.

Asian quarter players like Abando were one of the main variables that determined the performance of 10 teams this season.

Ulsan Hyundai Mobis’ Filipino player Ronjay Avarientos even received the rookie award.

Avarientos, who played in 51 regular league games and recorded an average of 13.6 points and 4.8 assists, led Hyundai Mobis to 4th place (34-20, 63% win rate) as a practical ‘ace’ beyond a simple rookie.

Lee Seon Albano of Wonju DB also recorded 13.3 points and 5.1 assists in every game, effectively replacing the role of ‘signboard’ Doo Kyung-min, who missed 27 games.

The annual salary of these two players is around 200 million won.

If it is 200 million won, it is outside the 30th place in the total compensation ranking as of this season among domestic players.카지노사이트

Teams that made good use of the Asian quota system used key players and leading players at a relatively low price.

From the next season, the upper limit of the annual salary of players recruited through this system was set at 160,000 dollars (approximately 210 million won) after tax.

This amount will be excluded from the salary cap for domestic players (2.8 billion won in total salary), so teams that do not recruit Asian quota players will actually suffer losses in terms of power.
