Donte DiVincenzo joins the Warriors for 2 years and 9.3 million

Left free by the Kings, Donte DiVincenzo did not take long to rebound in the League. The full-back has agreed with the Warriors on a two-year contract.

His romance with Sacramento only lasted a few months… Acquired during the season from Milwaukee, Donte DiVincenzo left the Californian capital after only 25 games played in the purple tunic. We would have expected management to offer him a contract to help the Kings find the Playoffs, but Sactown preferred to bet on other profiles. Malik Monk landed at the Free Agency, Kevin Huerter via a trade, enough to make the presence of DiVincenzo much less essential. Not extended by his frankness, the back did not drag to find an employer. Shams Charania de The Athletic announced overnight that Donte would strengthen the Warriors for two years and $9.3 million.

With the successive departures of Gary Payton II, Otto Porter Jr. and Nemanja Bjelica, the Dubs’ bench was beginning to lack reliable players and the addition of DiVincenzo will do some good. Able to do the job in defense and with an outside shot that has progressed well in recent years, “DD” has everything to make its place within Steve Kerr’s system. His serious injury during the 2021 Playoffs had marked a real brake on his career when he was a reliable holder of the five of the Bucks. Long on the sidelines and well supplemented by Wesley Matthews and Pat Connaughton, he had been sacrificed to bring in Serge Ibaka (who was mainly on the bench in Wisconsin). We imagined him staying in Sacramento and helping De’Aaron Fox on the backcourt, but it’s ultimately on the side of San Francisco that the native of Newark will shake the string. His arrival should partially compensate for the departure of GP II but Bob Myers may well bring in more people to strengthen his second unit. The market is far from over for the Dubs.

Donte DiVincenzo comes to help the Warriors and it’s a good signing for Bob Myers. The defending champion is looking for new soldiers to get back-to-back in 2023.
