    Chelsey Lee led WKBL in rebounding (10.5rpg) and finished 6th in scoring with 14.9ppg.

    Chelsey Lee has been given an endorsement by the Korean Sports Council for "special naturalization" procedure given her ancestry. Lee will suit up for Korea in the Olympic qualifiers as a naturalized player.

    Chelsey Lee's name was not included in the 24 player list sent by the KBA to FIBA due to lack of oversight on the organization's part but Korea will follow up an approval from FIBA to include Lee's name for the women's OQT.

    Provisional NT for South Korea in Women's OQT


    South Korea WOQT Roster

    Lee Yeongeun
    Lee Seung-Ah
    Lee Eunhye
    Park Hyejin
    Im Young-Hee
    Kim Danbi
    Kang Ahjeong
    Kang Yi-Sul
    Yang Ji-Hee
    Kwak Ju-Young
    Bae Hyeyun
    Park Ji-Su

    Could change depending on injuries and Korea will lobby for the late inclusion of Chelsey Lee if all her papers are processed.

    Coach Wee Seung-Woo still hopeful that Chelsey Lee's naturalization will be finalized on the domestic side and the essential paperwork be accepted by FIBA before the Women's OQT.

    With Lee's inclusion if go as planned, Korea will have to cut a post player. I believe Ji-Hee, Ju-Young and Ji-Su are locks while Lee could most likely replace Hyeyun.

    In a surprising turn of events, Chelsey Lee signed with the Washington Mystics. WNBA season overlaps with OQT preparation and the tournament itself. No word if Lee has an out clause for OQT.

    Park Ji-Su already the tallest in the NT on part of being the youngest at 17 years old. Been with the NT since 2014 at age 14.

    KBA taps Women's legend, Park Chan-Sook, who achieved prominence with the national team during to the 80s to early 90s to be a consultant for the women's NT. Park will be more of a player skill and mentor consultant slash hybrid coach.

    WKBL Draft in 29th of October 2016.

    HS Phenom Park Ji-Su headline the draft and the most interesting scenario for her is to skip college varsity and go pro while attending passive college. Either ways, I expect Ji-Su to be first pick overall.

    I like the game of Lee Ju-Yeon: a versatile winger that plays PG, SG and SF, who also moves well in defending lateral players. Na Yun-Jeong at 174cm is another shooter waiting in the mold of Yoon Yebin while 175cm Chah Ji-Yeon shows promise as a playmaker to play SF or SG.

    Park Ji-Su has been named MVP of Round6 of the WKBL, the first ever rookie to win that plum. KB Starts now at the third place of the league for the playoff race. All in all, Ji-Su in matching up with foreigners, have elevated her game and this bodes well for Korea's chances in the 2017 FIBA Asia.

    Coach Wer Sung-Woo has resigned after leading the team for four years. KBA will elect a successor for this year's FIBA Asia competition.

    Also, WNT PF Yang Ji-Hee has also retired after 12 years of playing in the WKBL.

    As expected, Go Ah-Ra did not made the cut for the very stacked LA Sparks. NT needs her more.

    Somewhat good news: Before the WKBL season starts, its stakeholders, team executives and the KBA will meet about the NT's preparation for next year's World Cup and how the WKBL can introduce measures to help the NT this season.

    WKBL season over and the KBA will name a new NT head coach for this year's international tournaments -- namely the 2018 Asian Games and the 2018 FIBA Women's World Cup.

    The ones I would like to see added to the NT are:

    182cm Park Ji-Hyun - The unanimous WKBL 1st pick overall. Her older brother, Park Ji-Won is playing for Yonsei. She's played for the U18 and U19 NT. Attended last month's BWB 2018 camp.

    190cm Choi Eun-Sil - Woori's versatile winger that is essentially a 3&D type of player.

    Others up for consideration:

    Kang Su-Sul
    Kim Ji-Yeong
    Nuh Hyun

    Park Ji-Su selected by Lynx as 17th in the 2nd round and later traded to the Las Vegas expansion.

    Park Ji-Su is determined to make the LV Aces lineup as she is now reported to be seeking a release clause for her club, the KB Stars. Park could also miss the World Cup and the Asian Games.

    KBA might re-negotiate with Park regarding the Asian Games as that competition is really what matters to them and Park is a huge loss if she won't play.
