Director Lee Sang-beom took the baton of DB in April 2017.
In the 2017-2018 season, he won the regular league championship with Deonte Button and received the manager award. However, they lost to SK in the championship match and failed to win the combined championship. Although it stagnated in 8th place in the 2018-2019 season, it succeeded in turning around with the recruitment of free agent Kim Jong-gyu in the 2019-2020 season. In a situation where the season ended early due to Corona 19, it tied for first place with SK. After two years, he won the director’s award again.
But after that, the slump continued. It ranked 9th in the 2020-2021 season and 8th in the 2021-2022 season.
Even in the 2022-2023 season, it is staying in 9th place with 11 wins and 18 losses. It is because of the number of injured people. Kang Sang-jae and Dewan Hernandez were knocked down one after another, and after the return of the big men, Doo Kyung-min was also injured. Even after the SK game, which was the last game, coach Lee Sang-beom said, “I hope the players do well without getting hurt.”
Director Lee Sang-beom said through the club after his voluntary resignation was decided, “I’m sorry for not living up to the expectations of the fans and the club.”
DB starts the season with coach Kim Joo-sung as acting coach from the away game against Hyundai Mobis on the 7th. Coach Kim Joo-seong is a legend who only played 16 seasons at DB. After retiring in 2018, he received leadership training in the United States and joined DB as a coach in 2019.
