2. DiVincenzo can jump out of the gym
Somewhat surprisingly, DiVincenzo absolutely lit up the 2018 NBA Combine. He posted excellent numbers almost all the way across the board and was one of the stars. This, combined with his great NCAA tournament run, propelled him to the middle of the first round and right into the Bucks’ lap.
The highest vertical leap was measured at 42 inches and belonged to Mr. DiVincenzo along with one other player. This surprised many people, as he hasn’t necessarily been pegged as a big leaper. He may have had limited opportunities to show it off in Villanova, but this should change in the more open and free-flowing game of the NBA.
He also posted the fifth-fastest lane agility time at 10.72. Duke’s Grayson Allen was first at 10.31. This speaks to his ability to move laterally and stay with his man on the perimeter.
He does a great job of combining this great athleticism with hard work and grit. He will likely win over a lot of fans with how hard he plays.
