Donte DiVincenzo joined the Golden State Warriors this summer after almost four years with the Milwaukee Bucks (and a small stint in Sacramento) and won one championship title in his third season in the NBA.
A collegiate standout star, DiVincenzo is a two-time NCAA champion and won the Most Outstanding Player of the 2018 Final Four. He’s no stranger to the bright lights as he was part of winning cultures since the start of his career.
In a recent interview, DiVincenzo spoke about the similarities between the Warriors and the Bucks organization, who won the last two NBA championships.
“You can break it down into two different things,” DiVincenzo told 95.7 The Game’s Damon Bruce and Ray Ratto (h/t NBC Sports Bay Area). “The team aspect of things, yes, you’re right, I don’t know what necessarily I’m getting into.
But the culture and the environment from what I’ve been told and honestly, from a few days out in the Bay of what I’ve witnessed already in the offseason is, it’s very similar in terms that everybody from top to bottom takes care of everybody around.”
DiVincenzo, 25, appeared in 42 games (one start) with the Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings last season, tallying averages of 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.14 steals in 24.0 minutes per game.
Originally selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 17th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, DiVincenzo owns career averages of 9.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 23.6 minutes in 201 games (91 starts) over four seasons with the Bucks and Kings.
