Donte DiVincenzo signs 4-year deal with Knicks

Donte DiVincenzo has agreed to a four-year, $50 million deal to join former Villanova teammates Jalen Brunson and Josh Hart with the New York Knicks, a person with knowledge of the details said Saturday.

The person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity that DiVincenzo spent last season with the Golden State Warriors before deciding to move across the country because the deal may not be official yet.

ESPN first reported the deal with the swingman.

The Knicks won a playoff series for the first time in a decade after signing Brunson last summer and acquiring Hart from Portland during the season. Brunson and DiVincenzo were part of two NCAA championship teams with the Wildcats, with Hart joining them on the first team.

DiVincenzo also won an NBA championship with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2021, though he only played in his first three playoff games before rupturing a ligament in his left ankle.

The Bucks’ first-round pick in 2018 was traded to Sacramento as part of a four-team deal at the trade deadline in 2022 before signing with the Warriors last July. DiVincenzo played in a career-high 72 games for Golden State last season, starting 36 and averaging 9.4 points.
