G - NYK
Donte DiVincenzo has agreed on a four-year, $50 million contract with the New York Knicks.
DiVincenzo was linked to the Knicks all offseason and that is where he lands. He reunites with his Villanova title teammates Jalen Brunson and Josh Hart. The rotations will be interesting to see with RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley also in the picture. It is a crowded situation at point guard and shooting guard, so it'll be interesting to see how the minutes shake out.
Donte DiVincenzo is not picking up his $4.7 million player option with the Warriors and will enter unrestricted free agency.
DiVincenzo could still return to Golden State, but he will test the free agent market coming off a strong season. He has been linked to the Knicks if he does leave the Warriors.
Donte DiVincenzo recorded a double-double for the Warriors Saturday night, grabbing 10 rebounds and scoring 20 points (7-16 FG, 6-12 3PT) while also blocking one shot, dishing out three assists, and recording two steals in a 125-116 win over the Bucks.
DiVincenzo has been impactful all over the floor of late for the Warriors, dishing out at least three assists and grabbing at least six rebounds in four of his last five games for the club. The guard has offered decent rebounding and assist output despite less than optimal scoring for fantasy owners while averaging 9.3 points, 3.4 assists, and 4.5 rebounds per game to go along with a 14.4% usage rate so far this season.
Donte DiVincenzo scored 21 points (7-13 FG, 4-9 3PT, 3-4 FT) and added eight rebounds, five assists, and four steals in the Warriors' win.
DiVincenzo impressively paced the Dubs in minutes (38) and +/- (+9) and finished behind only Klay Thompson in points on Sunday. The Villanova product's scoring and shooting splits are all up as of late despite his minutes slipping a bit. It isn't a stretch to say that DiVincenzo is flying under the radar right now. So long as Stephen Curry remains out of the lineup, DiVincenzo will garner more and more attention in deeper leagues.
Donte DiVincenzo (knee) is expected to play in Friday's contest against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Lingering knee soreness will give DiVincenzo an injury designation going into the day Friday, but it's considered a minor injury and he is expected to play through it on Friday night. It shouldn't limit him in any meaningful capacity, and he projects to be a good flex option against the Blazers.
