Seoul Samsung acquires Justin Gutang amid rebuilding efforts

Justin Gutang will remain in Korea.

After parting ways with Changwon LG, Gutang was picked up by the rebuilding Seoul Samsung Thunders.

The Thunders made the announcement on Wednesday.

Gutang, a 6-foot-3 winger out of the College of Saint Benilde, turned pro in 2022 after signing with the Sakers.

The 27-year-old Filipino-American guard turned heads in his second year, averaging 8.24 points, 3.17 rebounds, and 2.38 assists per game.

With his hustle, he helped the Sakers reach the 2023-24 KBL semifinals before bowing out to eventual finalists Suwon KT Sonicboom.

After the season, he was not renewed by Changwon LG, who opted to tap Carl Tamayo instead.

Gutang now joins a Thunders team that is coming off a disastrous last-place finish last season.

This time around, Seoul Samsung will pair Gutang with Lee Daesung, who is coming off a one-year stint with B.League club Seahorses Mikawa.
