5. Donte DiVincenzo
The Cavaliers would be wise to try and get Donte DiVincenzo. He was hurt to start the season, and since his return, he’s yet to show any type of cohesiveness in the Milwaukee offense. The Bucks are trying to win now, as are the Cavs, but Milwaukee is getting older and needs some more reliable young players.
DiVincenzo is not a bad player but he’s a very big unproven commodity. The Cavs could get him and turn him into the next Steve Nash, only stronger and with potentially better shooting. Yet, will he ever reach that potential? That’s hard to say, as he’s been all over the place as a player since entering the league.
Cleveland has room and time to see if he can develop, however, which isn’t a luxury the Bucks have.
This may seem like a weak haul for DiVincenzo but keep in mind that he’s not getting a lot of shots in Milwaukee and he’s not starting either. He also declined an offer before the team acquired Grayson Allen, so it seems like the Bucks are ready to move on from DiVincenzo
DiVincenzo has a great combo skillset, can score from all over the court, and could potentially develop into a play-making guard; serving as a legitimate backup point guard. With the Bucks pushing up against the luxury tax threshold, the team will have to make a decision about his future sooner, rather than later, or risk losing him for nothing.
