Donte DiVincenzo describes two months in Sacramento as ‘growth’ period

In exit interviews, transparency in where players stand on their views toward an organization and the makings of it are always set up to be juicy. If news broke last week that Donte DiVincenzo was unhappy with the way the Sacramento Kings used him since his trade from the Milwaukee Bucks this February, his final conversation with media on Monday afternoon would not have been the wiser.

Kings' Donte DiVincenzo: Scores 19 in season finale

DiVincenzo supplied 19 points (5-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-7 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Sunday's 116-109 victory over Phoenix. Coming off a pair of quiet outings, DiVincenzo finished the campaign on a high note, drilling four three-pointers and working his way to the line a season-high seven times in just 27 minutes of action. DiVincenzo stepped into a larger role in Sacramento after coming over from Milwaukee at the deadline, but he still struggled to score efficiently. In 25 games with the Kings, DiVincenzo posted 10.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.5 steals, but he shot just 36.2 percent from the floor (36.8% 3Pt).

Kings' Donte DiVincenzo: Flirts with triple-double

DiVincenzo closed Friday's 122-117 win over Houston with 19 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists, two blocks and three steals across 30 minutes. The former Bucks guard had a strong game and ended just one board and one assist away from recording what would've been the first triple-double of his career. He's been performing well despite coming off the bench of late, and he has scored in double digits in five of his last six appearances.

Kings' Donte DiVincenzo: Moves back to bench

DiVincenzo will come off the bench Wednesday against the Bucks, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports. DiVincenzo had 15 points, seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in a spot start Monday against the Bulls, but he'll head back to the bench with Justin Holiday (illness) back in the lineup. DiVincenzo should still be involved as a reserve against his former team Wednesday.

Kings' Donte DiVincenzo: Solid in starting role

DiVincenzo recorded 15 points (4-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Monday's 112-103 victory over the Bulls. DiVincenzo made his first start as a King due to Justin Holiday's (illness) absence. Although he's a bit buried in the depth chart, the Kings have little to play for since they are likely out of the playoff hunt. Teams out of the running usually dig deeper into their rosters to see what talent they have moving forward, so DiVencezo could benefit in the closing weeks.

Kings' Donte DiVincenzo: Starting Monday

Kings' Donte DiVincenzo: Hits double figures again

DiVincenzo finished with 13 points (3-6 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes Monday in the Kings' 131-115 loss to the Knicks. For the third game in a row, DiVincenzo reached double figures in scoring, though the 13 points represent his biggest total during that span. The 25-year-old probably can't be counted on to provide much more offense when the likes of De'Aaron Fox, Domantas Sabonis and Harrison Barnes are all healthy, but DiVincenzo at least typically supplements his modest scoring outputs with solid across-the-board production. He's averaging 4.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.9 three-pointers and 1.6 steals since joining the Kings at the trade deadline.

Kings' Donte DiVincenzo: Posts solid stat line Monday

DiVincenzo logged 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 22 minutes during Monday's 131-110 win over the Thunder. DiVincenzo's output was particularly impressive given the fact that he was on the court for only 22 minutes. The guard did much of his damage from beyond the arc, drilling a season-high four three-pointers en route to his second-highest scoring output of the campaign. DiVincenzo had reached double-digit scoring just once in his previous seven games prior to Monday, and aside from a five-steal outing Feb. 14, his production in that category has been hit or miss. He probably profiles as a better option in deeper leagues than 12-team leagues or shallower.

Kings' Donte DiVincenzo: Makes versatile contributions

DiVincenzo produced 12 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, five steals and two assists across 27 minutes during Monday's 109-85 loss to the Nets. The steal total matched a career high for DiVincenzo, who supplemented the defense with his first double-digit scoring effort as a member of the Kings. He led Sacramento in minutes off the bench and appears in line to co-lead the second unit with rookie first-round pick Davion Mitchell.
