2020 Fantasy Outlook
As a rookie in 2018-19, DiVincenzo appeared in just 27 contests and logged 15.2 minutes per game while posting modest numbers for Milwaukee in a reserve role. He took a big step forward in minutes and production in his second season, averaging 9.2 points, 4.8 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 threes across 23.0 minutes per contest. With recurring injuries to Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton throughout the year, DiVincenzo drew 25 starts, though he didn't see a sharp bump in playing time or production in those instances, sharing time with both Pat Connaughton and George Hill. DiVincenzo will be on a new team in 2020-21, as he was dealt to the Kings in the offseason in the trade that sent Bogdan Bogdanovic to Milwaukee. With Sacramento, DiVincenzo could hold a similar role to his sophomore campaign, seeing sixth-man minutes on the wing behind, presumably, Buddy Hield and Harrison Barnes. DiVincenzo makes for a late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues, though his upside is relatively limited since he's not a polished offensive player, with most of his fantasy value coming through steals.

Personal Bio

Donte DiVincenzo, son of John and Kathie, was born in 1997 in Newark, DE. DiVincenzo played three years of varsity basketball at Salesianum High School in Wilmington, leading the team to two consecutive state championships as a junior and senior. In 2015, after averaging 22.9 points and 9 rebounds per game for Salesianum, DiVincenzo was named the Delaware Sportswriters and Broadcasters Association's Boys' Basketball Player of the Year. A four-star recruit in 2015, DiVincenzo would go on to play 76 games for Villanova across two seasons of collegiate basketball. In his sophomore season, the guard averaged 13.4 points and 3.5 assists and was named the Big East Sixth Man of the Year. DiVincenzo heated up in the NCAA Tournament, averaging 23 points and 6.5 rebounds per game in the Final Four as Villanova took down Michigan in the National Championship game. He's also a member of the Starting Five of the Hoops2O foundation, established by fellow NBAer Malcolm Brogdon, which strives "to score clean, accessible drinking water for those in need." Learn more about the foundation at waterboys.org. You can follow DiVincenzo on Instagram @Divincenzo.

College/International Summary

In the final game of his college career, DiVincenzo came out a winner. He scored a career-high 31 points - including five 3-pointers - with five rebounds, three assists and two blocks in the 2018 National Championship game against Michigan. It capped a three-year odyssey with Villanova that had its share of fits and starts. The 6-4 guard played in nine games as a freshman before breaking his right foot. He returned as a redshirt freshman and provided 8.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in 25.5 minutes off the Wildcat bench. DiVincenzo scored 25 points in a Big East Tournament win over St. John's and opened the NCAA Tournament with 21 points and 13 rebounds in a win over Mount St. Mary's. In his sophomore year, the guard started 10 games, but coach Jay Wright implemented a six-man rotation and DiVincenzo went on to play 29.3 minutes per contest. He averaged 13.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists, and hit 40.1 percent of his three-pointers. DiVincenzo was named Most Outstanding Player of the 2018 NCAA Tournament and soon after applied for that summer's Draft.

2019

During DiVincenzo's second year in the league, he set career highs nearly across the board. The 6-foot-4 guard averaged 9.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals over 23.0 minutes per game. The Villanova product appeared in 66 out of a possible 73 games, with 27 starts. He also shot 45.5 percent from the field, 33.6 percent from three and 73.3 percent from the charity stripe. During a win over the Clippers on Dec. 6, the sophomore swiped a career-high four steals, adding 11 points, five rebounds and one assist. Ten days later against the Mavericks, DiVincenzo posted career highs in both rebounds (10) and assists (nine) while also contributing five points, three steals and one block in the start. He would reach that rebounding mark again Feb. 24 in a win over the Wizards. On Dec. 22 in a win over the Pacers, DiVincenzo blocked a season-high two shots, and he reached that number again Jan. 14 in a win over the Knicks. The guard scored a career-high 19 points on Jan. 16 in a win over the Celtics, going on to match that mark again Feb. 12 against the Pacers. During the first round of the playoffs against the Magic, DiVincenzo averaged 5.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists. During the second round against the Heat, he averaged 7.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists. His best playoff performance was Game 5 against the Heat, where DiVincenzo finished with 17 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal. In the NBA ranks, DiVincenzo finished with the 10th-best steal percentage (2.6), the third-best defensive rating (101.3), the 15th-most defensive win shares (3.2) and the sixth-best defensive box plus/minus (2.4).

2018

The 17th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft after three years at Villanova, DiVincenzo appeared in 27 games with the Bucks, seeing 15.2 minutes per contest. He averaged 4.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists while shooting 40.3 percent from the field, 26.5 percent from three and 75.0 percent from the free-throw line. He may have had opportunities to appear in more games, though he dealt with a heel injury for a significant chunk of the season. Arguably his best performance of the season occurred during a 22-point victory over the Magic. DiVincenzo posted a career-high 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds in only 18 minutes. His other career highs were, respectively, eight rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocks. DiVincenzo was part of a very successful five-man lineup that was plus-35.5 points per 100 possessions in a 21-minute sample, and it included Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton, Ersan Ilyasova and John Henson. The Bucks' home court seemed to make DiVincenzo more comfortable, as he posted a better true-shooting percentage (54.8) and net rating (plus-3) than he did on the road. In the six games that DiVincenzo saw at least 20 minutes, he averaged 8.0 points and 3.5 rebounds while totaling a combined seven steals-plus-blocks. His most efficient month was March, when he shot 8-of-17 from the field and 5-of-14 from distance for an effective field-goal percentage of 61.8.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
The 17th overall pick in the 2018 Draft by the Bucks, DiVincenzo had a relatively underwhelming rookie campaign. Between injuries and more experienced players in front of him on the depth chart, the guard appeared in just 27 games, averaging 4.9 points on 4.6 shots, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 15.2 minutes. He did see some action in the G League, too, playing in four games and averaging 15.3 points (43.1 FG%, 26.9 3P%, 83.3 FT%), 4.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 block in 28.1 minutes. It seems unlikely DiVincenzo will have a significantly larger role in 2019-20, though simply staying healthy would afford him increased fantasy value. However, that value will likely only matter in the deepest of leagues.
The 17th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, DiVincenzo walks into a winning situation where he'll likely struggle to find significant minutes in Year 1. At 6-foot-5, 205 pounds, DiVincenzo is a scoring guard who will have to compete with the likes of Eric Bledsoe, Malcolm Brogdon, Khris Middleton, Tony Snell, Sterling Brown, Pat Connaughton and Matthew Dellavedova for minutes. The hope is that he'll develop some playmaking skills to couple with his three-point shooting (40.1% 3PT last season), but that may take more than one season to develop. DiVincenzo’s defense, or lack thereof, is what may ultimately prevent him from being a consistent presence in the rotation, and he'll likely spend his fair share of time with the G League's Wisconsin Herd.
