Bucks Sign First-Rounder Donte DiVincenzo

The Bucks have signed first-round pick Donte DiVincenzo to his rookie scale contract, according to a press release issued by the team.

DiVincenzo, 21, was named the Big East Conference’s Sixth Man of the Year last season before leading Villanova to a national championship, earning 2018 Final Four Most Outstanding Player honors along the way. DiVincenzo scored a decisive 31 points on 10-for-15 shooting in the national championship game and averaged 23.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game in his two Final Four games.

The Bucks selected DiVincenzo with the 17th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. He figures to receive a first-year salary of approximately $2.48MM, the amount that represents the maximum allowable 120% of the rookie scale amount for the No. 17 pick in 2018/19.

Like all other first-rounders who sign rookie scale contracts, DiVincenzo will receive two guaranteed years, with team options in years three and four.

    Good thing! DJ Wilson posted picks of his back account recently and he had $3 and some change! Good for him. Wish him well..

      Unfortunately for him, he doesn’t receive his first paycheck until mid-November. But with the contract officially signed, I am sure someone will advance him a loan to cover the next 3 months.

    That Panini and shoe money will cover it. I’m sure his agent is fronting him, too.

  3. Good move! At least the kid is used to come from the bench, so it will be less of an adaptation time for him in Milwaukee.
