John Egbunu on his way to Korea

John Egbunu (211 cm, C) will play for KT Sonicboom in the Korean Basketball League this coming 2020/2021 season. Nigerian born Egbunu never really lived up to the hype. With a 40 inch vertical plus 211 cm and 120 kg, everybody’s expectations where heigh when he moved to the US in 2009. Egbunu played for the University of Florida and averaged 11.5 ppg and 6.5 rpg in his junior year. In his freshman year, he was also selected to the ACC All-Rookie Team. But after that, John Egbunu was plagued by injuries and declared for the draft as an early entry. Eventually, he ended up in the G League, where he played for the Long Island Nets and averaged 10.3 ppg and 7.4 rpg last season.
