Sono replaces 1st option foreign player…Onuaku, who played DB, is in the mix

Eventually, the replacement card was drawn.

Goyang Sono sent out Jarrod Jones (33), their first option foreign player. His replacement was Chinanu Onuaku (27), a defensive big man who played in the KBL in the 2019-2020 season.

Onuaku, who returns to the KBL after a three-year absence, was selected by the Houston Rockets with the 37th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft after graduating from the University of Louisville.

Known for his “strong under-the-basket shooting,” Onuaku averaged 14.4 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 1.5 blocked shots in 40 regular-season games for the Wonju DBs in 2019-2020. Using his athleticism and size (206 cm, 115 kg) as a weapon, he was a presence as a screener and strong in post play. 카지노사이트

“Rebounding is something we’re struggling with right now, and that’s something he can definitely work on,” said Sono. We expect a synergistic effect by controlling the floor through active post play, which will allow us to get a lot of chances from the perimeter.”

Sono plans to add Onuaku to the roster from the away game against Busan KCC on the 17th of this month once the foreign player visa and player registration are completed.
