Bucks Officially Sign Rookie Donte DiVincenzo

New, comments

DiVincenzo was the 17th overall pick in June’s draft.

NBA: NBA Draft Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

July is the month that NBA die-hards live for, with news breaking left and right, upending the entire league in the process. Today...the Milwaukee Bucks did not do that, but they did officially sign Donte DiVincenzo to a rookie scale contract.

The (*shudder*) Big Ragu is now an official NBA player, but he has not yet participated in the Bucks’ Summer League efforts in Las Vegas due to a lingering groin injury. With the “regular season” out of the way (the Bucks went 1-2 going into the “playoffs”), it’s entirely possible that DiVincenzo makes his debut right when the team needs him most, and leads teammates Sterling Brown, D.J. Wilson, and Christian Wood to glory and capture the NBA (Las Vegas Summer League) Championship.

On the other hand, it’s entirely possible that any injury that is easily tweaked (and if you’ve ever pulled a groin, you know how long it takes to get back to 100%) merits excessive caution, and that the Bucks will be without their Delawarian Michael Jordan as they flounder in the (Las Vegas Summer League) playoffs. At least we get more Travis Trice!
