KGC Ginseng Corporation Moon Seong-gon and Oh Se-geun moved to KT and SK, KT Yang Hong-seok to LG, SK Choi Jun-yong to KCC, and Gas Corporation Jeong Hyo-geun to KGC Ginseng Corporation. All of them are free agents within the top 30 in the previous season’s salary ranking, and according to KBL FA rules, the original team can choose one compensation player and 50% of the recruited free agent’s compensation or 200% of the recruited free agent’s compensation.
As the transfer of big fish players was active, it was expected that the recruitment of compensation players would be fierce, but there was no chain transfer of compensation players. KCC gave 1.1 billion won, 200% of Choi Jun-yong’s 550 million won, to SK, KT gave 1 billion won, 200% of Moon Seong-gon’s 500 million won, to KGC Ginseng Corporation, and KGC Ginseng Corporation paid 600 million won, 200% of Jeong Hyo-geun’s 300 million won. to Korea Gas Corporation, and LG compensated KT with 1 billion won, 200% of Yang Hong-seok’s 500 million won compensation.
Among the players that could be recruited as compensation players, there were real players. However, the clubs judged the market calmly. In the case of SK, the value of 1.1 billion won, in the case of KGC Ginseng Corporation, the value of 1 billion won and 600 million won, and LG analyzed that there is no compensation player with a value of 1 billion won. In the case of SK and LG, they received more compensation than the amount spent on recruiting Oh Se-geun and Moon Seong-gon, respectively.
An official from A said, “I know that everyone has been thinking a lot. I understand that SK was also determined until the end over the player and cash compensation plan. However, I think it was decided as a cash reward because I thought that the player I was trying to recruit was worth 1.1 billion won.”
Official B also said, “The club that invested a lot of money by recruiting a large free agent had to reduce the risk. If the recruited FA fails, you can hold them accountable for their investment. However, the fact that you can receive a large amount of money instead of a rewarded player and be freed from financial responsibility to some extent may also have played a part.”
