Seoul Samsung moves on from Will Navarro, signs Christian David

Seoul Samsung has decided to move on from William Navarro.

The Thunders have instead signed Filipino-Canadian Christian David as their Asian Quota player.

Samsung made the announcement on Thursday.

David, 24, is a 6-foot-6 bruiser. He graduated from Butler University with a degree in Marketing and International Business.

In the five years he spent with the Bulldogs, David normed 1.70 points and 1.41 rebounds – including 1.17 points and 1.50 rebounds in his fifth year.

Just like Wonju DB’s Ethan Alvano, David was not able to obtain his Philippine passport before the age of 16. Both of his parents, though, are Filipino – one of the requirements by the KBL.

With the Thunders signing David, Navarro’s offer with Samsung has ended.

Navarro was supposed to be Seoul Samsung’s Asian import for the 2022-23 KBL season but was unable to obtain his letter of clearance as he is still contracted with Gilas until March 2023.

The Thunders will open their season against Changwon LG on October 16.
