Former SlayerS player Brown has joined SK telecom T1.
KeSPA stated that after the disbanding of SlayerS Brown expressed his desire to join a KeSPA team and therefore KeSPA invited the teams to bid on his contract through the posting system. They further added that SK telecom was the only team to submit a bid and as a result Brown has joined SK telecom.
Born in September 1991, Brown (Choi, Min Su) is a Protoss player who reached the Round of 32 at the 2012 GSL Season 1 Code S and 1st place in the Iron Squid Chapter II Korean Qualifiers.
Brown becomes eligible to play for his team in Proleague with the commencement of Round 4 of the SK Planet Proleague 12-13, which is scheduled for March.
Note: It is widely known that Brown was already with SK telecom as a trainee player; the fact he just went through the posting system implies that his status has now become that of a professional player in KeSPA parlance.

From my understanding there's nothing stopping teams from bidding, but if multiple teams clear the reserve price then a lottery is held which disadvantages teams who have picked up players from the posting system. Since SK telecom was the only team to bid, the lottery did not occur.

This has been known for a really long time. It's just that no official announcement was made. It's kind of like with my FXO.NA players. When I sign players onto my team, some people know about it some don't. When people don't know about it, it's mainly because I never made an official announcement thread on TL. But they're still signed.
