Maxwell (32, 198 centimeters), Jung’s temporary replacement, expressed his satisfaction with life in Korea.
Anyang Jungkwanjang’s Duvan Maxwell scored 14 points, grabbed seven rebounds and added one assist in the team’s 74-72 win over Busan KCC in the 2023-2024 Jungkwanjang Professional Basketball League 토토사이트 at Anyang Gymnasium on Sunday.
Maxwell’s offense came alive in the second half. He was able to keep pace with opposing foreign player Alize DeShawn Johnson, while also being flexible with his scoring. He asked to be subbed off in the fourth quarter, but showed a willingness to play again.
“They’re a good team, but we were prepared and stepped up when it mattered,” Maxwell said after the game.
Maxwell, who played alongside Chung at the Jones Cup in August, is currently serving as a temporary replacement for Omari Spellman due to an injury. “The Jones Cup is a great tournament,” Maxwell said, “but the KBL is a higher level than the Jones Cup. I feel like I’m getting along with my teammates, my coach, everyone in the organization, and I think chemistry is important, and that helps me play well.”
Before the match, coach Kim Sang-sik praised Maxwell’s current performance, saying, “He’s not flashy, but he’s doing his job well.” Maxwell has adapted well to life in Korea. So what is he thinking about now?
“As a 32-year-old professional player, I’ve played in South America, Eastern Europe, and Western Europe, and I’m very happy with my life in Korea. I’m grateful to be able to focus on the cultural and basketball aspects of Korea, and I want to finish my career here, no matter what my future holds.”
