Professional basketball Hyundai Mobis, bring Knox back… “Looking forward to breathing with Prim”￼
Reporter Lee Eui-jin = Professional basketball Ulsan Hyundai Mobis sent foreign player Henry Sims (33) and brought Justin Knox (34), who was with them at the beginning of the season, to make a ‘win-win’.
KBL announced on the 20th, “Knox has been registered as a Hyundai Mobis player. He can play from the next match against Changwon LG on March 2nd.”
Knox originally prepared for the season wearing a Hyundai Mobis uniform even before the opening, such as digesting the KBL Cup last October.
However, in November of last year, he injured ligaments in his left ankle during training and left the team after being diagnosed with six weeks, and Sims, who joined as a substitute, filled the position.
Hyundai Mobis expected experience and stability as a veteran from Sims, who has also experienced the KBL stage in the 2020-2021 season through the NBA, Spanish and Italian leagues.
After that, Sims, who played 31 regular league games, could not play less than 10 minutes per game. Points and rebounds were only 3.7 points and 3.7 rebounds. 메이저놀이터
On the other hand, Knox, who played 9 games at the beginning of this season, shared the burden of keeping the bottom of the goal with another foreign player, Gage Prim, posting an average of 12.1 points and 9 rebounds in 23 minutes.
An official from Hyundai Mobis said, “Knox knows the atmosphere of our team and is a player who has matched up with Prim.”

As of the 20th, with 11 regular league games remaining, Hyundai Mobis is in 4th place with 26 wins and 17 losses.
They are two games behind second place Changwon LG (28-15). If you place second, you will receive a direct ticket to the semifinals of the playoffs (PO).
It is expected that Knox’s comeback match will be the next match against LG on March 2nd.
Most teams, including Hyundai Mobis, do not play for more than a week during the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) tournament. Only some teams will play a total of three games during the break due to schedule change requests.
