DiVincenzo became an unrestricted free agent after Kings declined to make him an offer
The Warriors have signed free-agent guard Donte DiVincenzo to a two-year, $9.3 million contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
According to Charania, the second year of the agreement is a player option.
According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, the Warriors are using a portion of their $6.5 million Taxpayer Mid-level Exception to sign DiVincenzo.
The Warriors signed DiVincenzo after apparently losing Gary Payton II and Otto Porter Jr. in free agency.
And they were able to sign him for less than the Portland Trail Blazers are expected to pay GP2.
Last season, DiVincenzo averaged 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 20.1 minutes per game between the Kings and the Milwaukee Bucks.
After being traded to Sacramento inside the middle of the season, he averaged 10.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 3.8 assists in 26.6 minutes over 25 games.
He has a career 34.7 3-point percentage, but he shot 36.8 percent with the Kings.
DiVincenzo, the Bucks’ No. 17 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, brings championship experience to the Warriors and went on to help Milwaukee win the 2021 championship.
When Steph Curry is on the bench, DiVincenzo will likely lead the second unit as Golden State attempts to repeat as champions.
Earlier on Friday, it was reported that the Warriors had agreed to re-sign center Kevon Looney to a three-year, $25.5 million deal.
With DiVincenzo on board, the front office is nearly finished retooling the roster.
They could make one or two more moves. But, so far, things are looking up for team president Bob Myers and Co.
