KT Han Hee-won 30, 195cm is shining eight years after his professional debut. He is showing off his presence in defense as well as the role of No. 2 shooting guard, KT’s weakness.
Han Hee-won was the second overall pick in the 2015 rookie draft. Han Hee-won, who graduated from Jemulpo High School and Kyung Hee University, was nominated for Electronic Land currently Korea Gas Corporation. Afterwards, he went through KGC Ginseng Corporation currently Jeonggwanjang and wore KT’s uniform.
Han Hee-won, who made her name as a shooter in college, has rarely seen light since her professional debut. Due to the defense pointed out as a weakness, the playing time was not long. He seemed to be a forgotten player, leaving no clear impact on offense and defense. However, Han Hee-won’s proportion in the team has grown noticeably this season.
KT is worried about the second shooting guard position. KT manager Song Young-jin said, “I’m trying to give Han Hee-won a chance,” and Han Hee-won is taking the opportunity. Han Hee-won has played 27 minutes and 57 seconds per game in nine games this season, recording a career high with an average of 9.9, 4.6 rebounds, 1.1 steals, and 1.6 three-point shots per game and a 33.3% three-point shooting success rate. Han Hee-won has never played more than 20 minutes on average per game in the eight seasons he played professionally until last season. The highest scoring debut season was only 5.3 points in the 2015-2016 season.
Han Hee-won is showing growth in defense and is also hitting a nutritious three-point in attack. Coach Song also said, “We are a team that needs a shot from the outside. Han Hee-won is making up for the weakness well, he said. “If I have a good pace in the first quarter, I couldn’t manage the foul and I was sorry to lose my condition, but I’m getting better as I run a lot.”
Han Hee-won, who has been constantly striving for eight years of sadness, is finally flapping her colorful wings. 안전놀이터
