It’s a Kangz-type beat.

Yesterday, the Sacramento Kings let Donte DiVincenzo walk, declining to give him a qualifying offer, to the surprise of quite a few folks. Now, he’s a Golden State Warrior, per Shams Charania. It’s a two-year deal with a second-year player option.

DiVincenzo, a 25-year-old 6’4″ guard out of Villanova, had a pretty solid 25-game stretch in Sacramento after being traded from Milwaukee as part of the four-way Marvin Bagley III trade, which doesn’t exactly look stellar for any of the parties involved.

  • Kings received: DiVincenzo (from Milwaukee), Josh Jackson (from Detroit), Trey Lyles (from Detroit)
  • Pistons received: Bagley (from Sacramento)
  • Clippers received: Rodney Hood (from Milwaukee), Semi Ojeleye (from Milwaukee)
  • Bucks received: Serge Ibaka (from Los Angeles), two second-round picks, cash

He averaged 10.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.5 steals per game with the Kings over those 25 games while shooting 36.8 percent from deep. He’s not viewed as an elite on-ball defender, but has very active hands and plays with energy on that end, disrupting passing lanes.

Here’s a video of DiVincenzo, “The Big Ragu” — one of his nicknames, along with “White Chocolate,” per his Basketball Reference page — getting BUCKETS for the Kings.

Is DiVincenzo a certified bucket-getter? We’ll find out soon enough as he shows out for the #GoldBlooded crowds at Chase Center.
