Evil Geniuses officially sign Bang

As the offseason game of musical chairs continues, Evil Geniuses announced on Friday that they have signed two-time League of Legends world champion Bae “Bang” Jun-sik.
The South Korean League of Legends star will start as the teams AD carry next season and will look to make an immediate impact for a team rebuilding its roster from scratch.

Though official terms of the agreement have not been disclosed, Evil Geniuses will send an undisclosed amount of cash to 100 Thieves in return for the two-time champion and the teams have also discussed the possibility of Evil Geniuses sending AD carry Matthew "Deftly" Chen to 100 Thieves.

Evil Geniuses acquired Deftly at the start of the month as part of a four-player trade with Cloud9 in which Evil Geniuses also acquired Dennis "Svenskeren" Johnsen, Tristan "Zeyzal" Stidam, and Colin "Kumo" Zhao as part of the deal.

The new signing comes on the heels of Evil Geniuses also announcing the signing of Svenskeren to fulfill the jungler position earlier in the week. Though other roster positions have yet to be filled, Evil Genius is holding true to their promise to build a new team from the ground up for the upcoming LCS 2020 season.

Bang will be playing alongside LCS MVP Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen and former Cloud9 support Tristan “Zeyzal” Stidam on EG, as well as top laner Colin “Kumo” Zhao and ADC Matthew “Deftly” Chen who are also set to be joining the team. The new lineup will primarily involve 

The new Evil Geniuses lineup will center around Svenskeren, Zeyzal and Bang as the team will spend some time evaluating its options for the rest of the season and still have one remaining import slot to use, pending Svenskeren’s decision to declare himself a North American resident this offseason.

Svenskeren became eligible to become a North American resident after four years of competition in the LCS by the end of this calendar year.
