The men’s professional basketball Goyang Carrot Jumpers, which had raised concerns about their financial situation from the beginning, was unable to pay the salaries of the players on time.
Jumpball, a basketball media outlet, reported that the Carrot club had notified that the salary of the players, which had been paid on the 5th of every month, would be delayed by one week.
According to reports, on the 4th, the day before the salary was paid, Carrot is known to have asked for understanding from the players, interpreters, and trainers, saying that the salary payment would be delayed by one week.
Carrot, who entered professional basketball (KBL) for the first time this season, has been constantly noisy since the founding process. 토토사이트
In June of last year, when reviewing KBL new member companies, approval was withheld once due to insufficient submitted materials such as funds and operation plans, and the preferential payment of special membership fees in the form of membership fees did not meet the deadline.
Carrot’s de facto parent company, Daewoo Marine & Shipbuilding & Construction Chairman Kim Yong-bin’s recent actions are also raising concerns.
The operator of Carrot Club is Dayone Sports, a special purpose corporation of Dayone Asset Management, and the parent company of Dayone Asset Management is Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.
Chairman Kim, who has shown a lot of interest in sports by serving as the president of the Korea Curling Federation and a director of the Korea Sports Association, has recently expressed his intention to take responsibility for the deterioration of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering’s management and strive to normalize management.
At the same time, he resigned from both the president of the Korea Curling Federation and the director of the Korea Sports Association.
It is said that Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering is currently experiencing serious financial difficulties such as delayed payment of wages for executives and employees and delays in subcontract payments.
In the midst of this, as even the Carrot club has a wage arrears, concerns are growing that the aftermath of the crisis of the de facto parent company Daewoo Shipbuilding & Construction is reaching the club.
