]The reason why Hyundai Mobis recruited Kim Joon-il (31, 201cm) was because of Ham Ji-hoon’s aging.

Currently, Hyundai Mobis has room for Big Man Jin. National team big man Jang Jae-seok is holding out on franchise star Ham Ji-hoon. Kim Hyun-min, a backup resource, is also on standby. Depending on the situation, Choi Jin-soo may be appointed as a power forward.

Nevertheless, the reason why Hyundai Mobis brought Kim Joon-il is because of Ham Ji-hoon’s aging. Ham Ji-hoon, who is 40 years old this year in Korean age, showed off his robustness last season as well. However, he failed to show his skills at the end of the regular league and in the playoffs due to a chronic back injury. If Ham Ji-hoon leaves, Jang Jae-seok is the only main big man left, so he was reinforced by Kim Joon-il.

An official from Hyundai Mobis said, “(Ham) Ji-hoon is a player who has shown his ability on the court until last season. However, as time passed, his physical strength and physical condition fell. There is also a chronic back injury. In the process of finding a replacement due to aging, (Kim) Jun-il was recruited. “Considering Ji Hoon, I think (Kim) Hyun-min, who rarely played in the new season, should also use it to some extent,” he said, explaining why he recruited Kim Joon-il.

Meanwhile, Hyundai Mobis also succeeded in cracking down on house rabbits. Ham Ji-hoon contracted for two years, paid 450 million won (315 million won per year, incentives 135 million won), Choi Jin-soo contracted for two years, paid 350 million won (280 million won per year, incentives 70 million won) and Kim Hyun-min contracted for one year (63 million won per year, incentives 7 million won). In particular, it is notable that he has decided to accompany veteran Ham Ji-hoon for another two years.

“We have a bond with Ji-hoon. Aren’t you the franchise star of our team. I don’t think 450 million won is a courtesy. He still recognizes his skills. There are many players who are not as good as Jihoon. He said he would complete the two-year contract period, but I’ve never seen Ji-hoon keep his promise for 17 years. be always sincere. So I signed a two-year contract.” This is what a Hyundai Mobis official said about Ham Ji-hoon.

The reason why he renewed his contract with Kim Hyun-min, who averaged only 4 minutes and 52 seconds in 27 regular league games last season, was his invisible contribution. It is said that it was Kim Hyun-min who hung out with his juniors and took care of the people around him the best.

An official from Hyundai Mobis said, “We have already talked with coach Cho Dong-hyun to renew the contract since the middle of last season. It’s not easy to hang out with juniors if Hyun-min is a senior player, but he works out together in the offseason. He also has leadership. He said, “I decided to stay together for another year because I thought it was a good influence on the team after seeing him buy snacks for trainers and meals for juniors.”
