Incheon Shinhan Bank ace Danbi Kim (32) changes into the Asan Woori Bank uniform. Woori Bank is determined to reclaim the throne it gave to Cheongju KB in last season’s championship game by recruiting Kim Dan-bi, the largest free agent (FA).

Woori Bank announced on the 2nd that it had signed a contract with Danbi Kim for a four-year annual salary of 300 million won and an allowance of 150 million won. Woori Bank said, “It is a player with the best skills in women’s professional basketball, and it is absolutely necessary for Woori Bank to rise to the top once again.”

Danbi Kim, who joined Shinhan Bank in 2008, played only in one team until last season. Danbi Kim was selected as one of the top 5 leagues for the 2010-2011 season, the 2011-2012 season, the 2014-2015 season, the 2016-2017 season, and the 2021-2022 season. He also won three scoring awards. Last season, he played in 24 games, averaging 19.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 4.1 assists.

Danbi Kim also played for the national team. Danbi Kim was selected for the national team at the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, China, and she played for the women’s basketball team at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, the 2016 Rio Olympics in Brazil and last year’s Tokyo Olympics. She is equipped with Kim Dan-bi and her popularity. Danbi Kim is an evaluation that she has her star surname to the extent that she ranked first in the All-Star fan vote from the 2016-2017 season to the last season.

Danbi Kim said, “I am grateful to the Woori Bank club for giving me the opportunity to challenge myself to a higher place in a new environment.

With the signing of Dan-bi Kim, the largest free agent, Woori Bank has the power to challenge the throne KB. If you add Kim Sonia (29) and Park Hye-jin (32) to Kim Dan-bi’s attack power, it is safe to say that Woori Bank’s attack power is the best in the league. Last season, Kim Sonia scored 16.1 points and Park Hye-jin scored 16.1 points, ranking 6th and 7th on average.
