Donte DiVincenzo: D
As good as the Budenholzer signing was, the Donte DiVincenzo draft pick was equally puzzling. Sitting at pick No. 17, the Bucks were apparently trying to move back to 19 with the Hawks and potentially pick up their 30th overall selection as well. However, that fell through, leaving Milwaukee to take DiVincenzo at 17.
That was a bit of a surprise to the NBA community, as DiVincenzo is a one-dimensional player. He only had one good season at Villanova and is a three-point specialist. This is good for the Bucks in that they need more floor-spacers around Giannis Antetokounmpo. However, DiVincenzo can do little else.
DiVincenzo struggles to create his own shot and that will continue in the NBA. He’s almost assuredly a spot-up shooter for the Bucks. He did test extremely well athletically at the combine, but that doesn’t appear to transition well to the games based on his college film. He also showed very little during the Las Vegas Summer League, but was coming off a hamstring injury that limited his availability. Still, there are more question marks than answers that surround the Bucks’ top draft pick.
