‘Basketball’s top scorer’ Lee Dae-sung strikes out for overseas expansion… “Australia is number one”
Daesung Lee, a free agent (FA) and ‘experienced in overseas expansion’, expressed his intention to challenge the Australian stage this time.
Daegu Korea Gas Corporation announced on the 20th, “Lee Dae-seong is challenging to advance overseas after discussions with the club.”
According to the club, Lee Dae-sung, who became a free agent at Korea Gas Corporation after the 2022-2023 season,’s ‘first goal’ is to advance to Australian professional basketball.
The Australian professional league, in which 10 teams compete, is evaluated to be of a higher overall level than Asian leagues such as Korea, China, Japan, and the Philippines.
Asia’s best big man Zhou Qi, who stepped onto the NBA stage as a center for the Chinese national team, played in the Australian league until the end of last year.
Zhou Qi has boasted overwhelming heights against Asian teams, such as playing an active part with 13 points and 14 rebounds in the 2019 International Basketball Federation (FIBA) World Cup ranking match between Korea and China (73-77 China won) 먹튀검증.
Even Zhou Qi’s power has declined somewhat on the Australian stage.
Until returning to China in December last year, he played in 9 regular league games in the 2022-2023 season, recording 6.2 points and 4.4 rebounds.
Korea Gas Corporation said, “We are considering recruiting (Lee Dae-sung) in the Japanese B-League.
He added, “If advances to overseas leagues are not confirmed by the end of this month, we will renegotiate with the original team according to KBL rules, so we will keep an eye on the situation.”
Lee Dae-seong said, “I am grateful to the club for taking care of me. I want to show good results. The passion and love shown by Daegu fans was impressive as a player.”
Lee Dae-sung played in 51 regular league games last season and recorded an average of 18.1 points, ranking first among domestic players.
Even in the 2021-2022 season, when he was playing for Goyang Orion (now Day One), he ranked first in average points (17 points) in the regular league among domestic players.
In 2017, when he was with Hyundai Mobis in Ulsan, Lee Dae-sung also challenged the G League, the lower league of the NBA, as a ‘voluntary withdrawal’.
After graduating from Samil Commercial High School and dropping out of Chung-Ang University, Lee Dae-seong joined the Brigham Young University basketball team in Division 2 of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and played as a player for a year.
