Seoul Samsung is aiming for a counterattack in the second half by replacing all foreign players.
Samsung finished the first half of the 2022-23 season with a shabby record of 10th place with 10 wins and 21 losses. Even until mid-December, it maintained mid-table, but fell into the swamp of 8 consecutive losses and fell to the bottom.
Samsung has not enjoyed spring basketball since the 2016-17 season. They finally pulled out their swords during the All-Star break. Instead of the existing Emmanuel Terry and Marcus Derrickson, new foreign players are recruited to change the atmosphere.
Darrell Willis will be Samsung’s new main foreign player. He averaged 11.6 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 21 appearances for Lokomotiv Kuban in the VTB United League in the 2022-23 season. 메이저사이트
Willis has a midrange jumper as well as a type of play style that is good at attacking the rim. Above all, as he is also good at 2-on-2 play with his colleague big man, collaboration with Lee Won-seok is expected.
However, the variable is that she is 206 cm tall and weighs 102 kg. He has no doubts on offense, but there are question marks on defense. If the defense is possible to hold on, it is expected that there will be no big problem.
Anthony Moss was recruited as a sub foreign player. Unlike Willis, Moss is a typical big man and boasts a decent height of 203 cm and a solid physique. In the 2022-23 season, he played for Maccabi Ranana in the Israeli National League and played 11 games, averaging 14.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.3 steals.
Moss is not the type to score alone. He tends to show his strength when working with a good guard, but Samsung is an environment that can be maximized as long as Kim Si-rae and Lee Jung-hyun are present.
Willis and Moss are expected to receive official signings within this week at the earliest. During the All-Star break, he will work hand in hand with domestic players and lead Samsung’s counterattack in the second half.
Suwon kt has already succeeded in rebounding by using all foreign player replacement cards and recruiting Jarrod Jones and Leicester Prosper. Samsung is also dreaming of such a positive change. Can Willis and Moss lead Samsung’s spring basketball? This is why the second half is more anticipated.
