Hyundai Mobis announced that it has decided to terminate the contract with Avarientos through mutual agreement on the 30th, the deadline for KBL domestic player registration for the 2023-2024 season.
Hyundai Mobis said in a press release, “As Avarientos requested a transfer to another league, we mutually terminated the contract through an internal decision.”
Avarientos entered the KBL stage through the Asian quota system, which was expanded to Filipino national players last season. As a point guard, he averaged 13.6 points and 4.8 assists per game, helping the team reach the postseason.
He also won the rookie of the year title for the first time as an Asian quota player.
2 The remaining five Asian Quarter players who signed contracts of more than one year have all registered for the next season.
Justin Gutang will also return in Changwon LG’s uniform for his next season.
The average annual salary of Asian quarter players for the next season was about 160 million won, slightly lower than the previous season (about 185.83 million won).
Initially, the salary of Asian quarter players was included in the salary cap for domestic players. However, from the next season, the KBL Board of Directors excluded the annual salary of Asian quarter players from the salary cap and limited the annual salary to 160,000 dollars (approximately 211 million won).
On the other hand, as a result of the domestic player registration deadline for the 2023-2024 season, Kim Seon-hyung (Seoul SK), who is expected to receive a total of 800 million won in remuneration, has become the’salary king’ for the second consecutive year.
Moon Seong-gon, who left Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation and signed a free agent (FA) contract with Suwon KT, followed with a total of 780 million won.
Guard Choi Seong-won, who transferred from Seoul SK to KGC Ginseng Corporation, recorded the highest increase rate of 340% (91 million won in the previous season, 400 million won in the next season).
Jeonju KCC and Seoul SK, which are attracting attention as ‘super teams’ for the next season, both exceed the salary cap and are subject to a soft cap. The total annual salary of KCC’s players was 3,074.79 million won (109.8% burnout rate), exceeding the limit of 2.8 billion won, and SK’s total annual salary was 2,988.94 million won (106.7% burnout rate).
Both teams must pay 30% of the excess to the Youth Basketball Development Fund.
