Korean League says they’ll seek further sanctions against Monica Wright through FIBA

The Women’s Korean Basketball League (WKBL) has decided to ban Monica Wright of the Minnesota Lynx for five years on Thursday.

The 25-year old WNBA guard, more famous for being engaged to NBA superstar Kevin Durant, could care less about not being able to play in the WKBL in the future, but the Korean club and the league believed they had to make a strong statement to other foreign players and agents that they’ll not be taken lightly.

The WKBL also announced that they will seek further sanctions through FIBA, which is basketball’s international governing body.

Wright had signed a contract to play for the KEB-Hana Bank team in Korea this winter, but has gone AWOL after just six games, to return to the United States.

Most players in the WNBA take overseas job during the off-season, as they command much higher salaries in other countries such as South Korea, Russia, and Turkey.
