Donte DiVincenzo

When he was a member of the Bucks, Donte DiVincenzo was a key role player and his play was one of the more underrated reasons Milwaukee took home a championship. Though he played sparingly in the playoffs, Donte put up averages of 10.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists, while shooting 38% from three-point range in the regular season.

In what was his first season as a full-time starter, DiVincenzo showed out and displayed his value to the other 29 NBA teams. During a strange season where games were played in empty arenas without fans and plenty of adversity to go around, Donte provided stability for an Eastern Conference contender looking to make a championship push.

It was his play during that season that propelled DiVincenzo to being a hot commodity on the free agent market. He picked up one-year stints with the Kings and Warriors before landing with the Knicks, where he is currently having a career season for another top playoff contender.

Having Donte on the current iteration of the Bucks would be a huge development. His three-point shooting gravity is some of the most valuable in the association this season, and it may have given Milwaukee a serious leg up on the rest of the East.
