Cho declares intention to sign Filipino import for Changwon LG

Almost a year since the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers, South Korea national team head coach Cho Sang Hyun is set to come back to the country.

But it’s not for a FIBA competition.

Cho, who is also the head coach of Korean Basketball League club Changwon LG, will be arriving in the country to scout some players who the team could possibly sign as their Asian quota player.

“I watch a lot of videos and I will be making a lot of requests to our analytics team,” Cho told Naver Sports.

“The Asian Quota has opened to the Philippines so we are planning to go there. I have a lot of work to do.”

The KBL, recently, opened its doors to adding Filipinos to its Asian Quota program. Previously, only Japanese players were allowed to be imports in the KBL.

However, only Filipinos who have parents who both own Filipino passports or citizenship are allowed to play there.

According to multiple sources closely monitoring the situation, one KBL team had already arrived in the country last weekend and even watched the Ateneo-UP game at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

The Sakers finished in seventh place last season, finishing with a 24-30 slate.
