Donte DiVincenzo was an under the radar prospect when the Milwaukee Bucks drafted him with the 17th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. The Bucks were somewhat connected to him throughout the draft process, but a lot of experts thought they’d go in a different direction.
However, here we are with DiVincenzo being the man the Bucks drafted and apparently really wanted. DiVincenzo was at Villanova for three seasons and won two National Championships with the team. He’s almost exclusively a bench player, having only started 12 of his 85 career games.
He played nine games his freshman season in 2015-16, before breaking a bone in his left foot and redshirting the rest of the year. Then, in 2016-17, his redshirt freshman campaign, he averaged 25.5 minutes per game while putting up 8.8 points off the bench.
He took a nice step forward last year while continuing to come off the bench. He dropped 13.4 points per game while shooting a scorching-hot 40.1 percent on 5.3 three-point attempts per game.
There’s a lot of stuff to know about DiVincenzo and what he’ll bring to the Bucks. In order to help you know exatly what type of player and person Milwaukee is getting, let’s dive into six things you may or may not be aware of when it comes to DiVincenzo.
