Pepper Savings Bank → Korea Expressway Corporation → Pepper Savings Bank.
Less than a week later, the player who left the team as a compensation player returned to his former team. What happened?
Pepper Savings Bank reported a trade news on the 2nd. It was a trade in which middle blocker Choi Ga-eun and 2023-2024 1st round rookie nomination rights were exchanged with Korea Expressway Corporation setter Lee Go-eun for 2023-2024 2nd round rookie nomination rights.
It’s ironic. After the 2021-2022 season, Lee Go-eun acquired FA (free agent) qualifications and moved her enemies from Korea Expressway Corporation to Pepper Savings Bank. As a compensation player for outside heater Park Jung-ah, who joined Pepper Savings Bank as a free agent after 2022-2023, he became a member of Korea Expressway Corporation on the 25th of last month, and returned to Pepper Savings Bank after ‘6 days’ after leaving the team.
Pepper Savings Bank is also perplexed. The Highway Corporation, a former FA team, did not categorize Lee as a protected player under the judgment that the probability of appointing Lee Go-eun was low, but what was ‘no way’ came to reality. In this FA market, Park Jung-ah and Chae Seon-ah raised expectations for the next season by strengthening their power, but the embarrassment was added by losing the ‘main setter’ in an instant.
The lights went out on fire. Pepper Savings Bank had to bring Lee Go-eun as a top priority. Because of this, the trade with Korea Expressway Corporation was made in a snap. Korea Expressway Corporation had to fill the vacancy of middle blocker Jeong Dae-young, who left for GS Caltex as a free agent. I also had Lee Go-eun, but I had a strong will to raise another setter, Lee Yoon-jung, in the team.ㅋㅋㅋ벳
Various cards such as players and nomination rights were matched, and Pepper Savings Bank gave up even Choi Ga-eun, who showed growth in the first round rookie nomination rights, to Korea Expressway Corporation. From the FA compensation player nomination to the trade, it was done in just a week. Kim Jong-min, director of the Korea Expressway Corporation, said, “The person who was most confused was (Lee) Go-eun. He said everything will be fine with Ko-eun, so he told me not to worry and not to get too confused.”
The Korea Expressway Corporation naturally spurred on ‘rebuilding’. The rookie draft is conducted as a ‘probability lottery system’ that applies differential probabilities according to the rankings of the previous season. I got 36 marbles. This means that the probability of holding middle blocker Kim Se-bin (Hanbomgo), called the “biggest fish” in the 2023-2024 season, has increased from 1% to 36%.
Kim Jong-min, director of the Korea Expressway Corporation, said, “Once the probability has increased. I have a chance, so I think it’s worth a try,” he said with a smile.
