Between his ankle injury, his difficult return to Milwaukee followed by his transfer during the “trade deadline” and his difficult end to the year in Sacramento, Donte DiVincenzo had a chaotic season, the worst of his career.
Suffice to say that he did not approach the summer in the best conditions. After finding his shoe at Golden State, where he signed up for two years for 9.2 million dollars, the rear returned to the different stages of his first experience of free agency.
“It was stressful, I’m not going to lie. I was calling my agent, “What’s going on? What are we doing ? »he remembered.
Phone calls from Stephen Curry and Draymond Green
It turns out that his profile remains popular and that the situation quickly evolved favorably with the Warriors proposal. In the process, the phone calls from Draymond Green and Stephen Curry necessarily weighed in the balance.
“It was two different types of conversations”he continued, with a Draymond Green who spoke to him ” frankly “, and Stephen Curry whom he describes as “the nicest person in the world, so everything was good”.
Golden State necessarily ticked all the boxes, with the opportunity to evolve with the defending champion, with an extensive structure to help him find his best level, and a good card to play in terms of the game.
“I got away from numbers and dollars and everything and was more focused on what’s best for Donte, what’s best for me going forward. I come back to culture and environment, and I think that’s something I want to be a part of and that’s who I am. I don’t need to change to fit in.”he added.
There is no doubt that his integration will be facilitated by the talent that will surround him and will ensure that the game opens up more to him, as was the case in Milwaukee.
