Professional basketball Wonju DB chose Jeff Widdy as a foreign big man to assist Didrick Lawson, the main player of the four-game winning streak.
DB announced on the 2nd that it decided to replace Garrison Brooks, who was diagnosed with a knee cartilage injury for two weeks, and recruited Widdy. After playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA), Widdy, a graduate of Kansas University, averaged 8.8 points and 7.3 rebounds in 32 regular league games as a member of KBL Goyang Orion in the 2020-21 season.레모나토토 주소
At the time, Widdy was expected to show his under-the-goal control by utilizing his 213cm height, but he had a hard time adapting to KBL with his slow feet and weak attack. In the end, Widdy, who failed to improve his performance, was replaced by Devin Williams.
DB has been troubled by Brooks’ poor performance since the Cup. He brought Brooks, an authentic center, as a partner of Lawson, who stirs the court with an outside shot and an accurate pass as a weapon, but he failed to show his strengths and to make matters worse, he injured his knee, which lengthened Lawson’s playing time.
DB coach Kim Joo-sung said ahead of the match against KT in Suwon on the 30th of last month, “I think the main match should be played for more than 30 minutes, but Lawson is playing more than that. “I heard it’s okay, but I’m going to give you a break by looking at the other player’s composition,” he said. “I’m looking for a replacement for Brooks.” We are also considering a complete replacement,” he said, and chose Widdy.
Lawson and Widdy shared a pot of rice in Orion. At that time, Widdy played as a foreign 1 option, and Lawson was followed by 2 options. Three years later, the situation of the two players was completely reversed. Lawson is attracting attention as the best foreign player in the KBL, and Widdy joined the DB as a substitute and took on the role of ensuring Lawson’s break time.
