The KBL Cup Tournament, which checks the strength of each club ahead of the opening of the professional basketball regular season, will be held at Wolmyeong Gymnasium in Gunsan, Jeollabuk-do from the 8th to the 15th.

After being divided into four groups and holding a group league, the top four teams from each group will play a tournament to determine the winner.

The finals are at 2pm on the 15th.

Group A consisted of Sangmu, KT, and Wonju DB, Group B consisted of Korea Gas Corporation in Daegu, KCC in Busan, and LG in Changwon.

Group C consisted of Seoul Samsung, Seoul SK, and Goyang Sono, and Group D consisted of Anyang CheongKwanJang and Ulsan Hyundai Mobis.

In particular, at this tournament, Goyang Sono, a new team that will participate in professional basketball starting in the 2023-2024 season, will greet fans.

Sono will play its first game against Samsung at 2pm on the 10th.

Although it is a new team, most of the players from the Day One club that were expelled due to management difficulties were recruited.

Jeon Seong-hyun, who stands out for his 3-point shooting, and Lee Jeong-hyeon, a guard in his third year of debut, lead the team.

However, it is unclear whether Jeon Seong-hyun and other national team players from each club will participate in the KBL Cup in normal condition because the Hangzhou Asian Games schedule ends on the 6th.

This competition is also an opportunity for foreign players to get their hands on the ball ahead of the opening of the regular season on the 21st of this month.

A total of six foreign players renewed their contracts with their existing teams ahead of the 2023-2024 season.

Cheong Kwan-Jang will feature Omari Spellman and Daryl Monroe, who contributed to last season’s championship, and SK, the playoff runner-up team, will feature foreign players (MVPs) Jamil Warney and Leon Williams this season as well.

Assem Marey, who ranked first in rebounds and steals in the regular season, also renewed his contract with LG, and Gage Prim also joins Hyundai Mobis.

Sono tried to recruit Anthony Bennett, who was selected first in the 2013 National Basketball Association (NBA) rookie draft, but failed.

An official from the Sono club said, “Bennett did not pass the medical test due to poor health,” and added, “We will look for a new player to participate in the tournament.”

KCC moves its headquarters from Jeonju to Busan and begins the new season.

Meanwhile, tickets for the KBL Cup competition can be reserved on the KBL integrated website.
