KGC coach Kim Seung-ki’s expectations and concerns for NBA veteran Omarie Spellman
Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation, led by Kim Seung-ki, officially announced its bid to recruit Omarie Spellman (24, 2m3) on the 31st of last month. I finished the last puzzle a little late. “I was thinking about some candidates until the end,” Kim explained.
Despite the belated recruitment, Spellman is enough to raise expectations. He is a big man with both inside and outside and boasts a 2-meter 18-meter wingspan. He was nominated to Atlanta as the 30th overall player in the 2018 NBA draft, and was traded to the Golden State the following year. He averaged 6.8 points to 4.3 rebounds in two seasons in the NBA. It was traded once again in February 2020. Transfer to Minnesota. Spellman later played in the G-League, an NBA lower league.
“He is a player I have watched since last season. The shot is very good. The shooting form is rather unusual, but the three-point shot is accurate. He also has the ability to score passes from his teammates under the goal. “I think I can play high-low enough.”
In order for Spellman to reveal his strengths, there is something that must be preceded. It’s adaptation. “Spellman has only played in the United States. It’s my first time playing abroad. He is young, too. This time, it is also late to join due to self-isolation of coronavirus 19. It is important how quickly and well you adapt to Korean basketball. “I hope Daryl Monroe (35, 1m97), who has experienced KBL, will lead the team well.” Monroe, another foreign player of the KGC, played for the Goyang Orion in the 2018-2019 season 토토사이트
Meanwhile, since the KGC has belatedly closed the formation of foreign players, the cup competition should be held only by domestic players. Coach Kim said, “Monroe’s self-quarantine will be lifted during the cup competition. Spellman is expected to join in early October. “We will prepare hard for the cup competition with Korean players.” The 2021 KBL Cup will be held from 11th to 18th. KGC will play against Suwon KT and Orion in Group B.
