Lester Prosper (34, 210cm)’s KBL debut game has been decided. He will wear the KT uniform from the away game against KCC.
On the 19th, Suwon KT completed a series of paperwork procedures, including the issuance of a visa for Prosper, a foreign player who replaced Nnoko Landry. As a result, Prosper was able to participate in the 2022-2023 SKT A.Dot Pro Basketball regular league away game against Jeonju KCC, which will be held at Jeonju Gymnasium on the 20th.
KT, which is still at the bottom (7 wins, 14 losses), made a winning move by replacing all two existing foreign players, including Eunnoko and Jei Anoshike. Prosper replaced Nnoko and Jarod Jones joined KT instead of Anoshike.
However, there was a difference in the arrival date of Prosper and Jones. Prosper entered the country two days earlier than Jones, and the paperwork was relatively early. Prosper’s visa issuance has been completed, so he can play before the KCC match. It is very likely that Jones’ debut match, which has not yet been issued a visa, will be a home match against Korea Gas Corporation in Daegu on the 23rd.
Accordingly, KT will play the KCC game on the 20th with a combination of Prosper and Anoshike. For Anoshike, the match against KCC is expected to be KT’s farewell match. Eunnoko, who was expelled, also leaves the country on the same day. 안전놀이터
