Donte DiVincenzo has lifted a burden off his shoulders
Donte DiVincenzo was the biggest move the Knicks made this summer. With a 4-year, $50 million contract, they have strengthened their long-term wings with a player who, through the game, aims to fit in perfectly. New Yorkers are happy, yes, but what’s even happier is a player whose future is assured and feels calm enough to showcase his best basketball.
“I’m lucky and grateful to have some stability, to be in a team now on a four-year contract. I can calm down and calm down. Last year, I had a one-year contract. You get nervous, because that’s more pressure. And you’re also playing with Steve Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, which adds to that pressure,” Stefan told Bondy. New York Post.
The new player in the Big Apple is right. When players are in the final year of their contract, they are not only playing to give their best, but also with the idea of being able to sign another agreement a few months later. DiVincenzo has now taken the weight off his shoulders. It remains to be seen whether this new context will lead to us being better or to being too relaxed – we don’t think so; On numerous occasions, players have been said to band together when their future is at stake.
