Deep-dive: How will Donte DiVincenzo fit with the Warriors?

Deep-dive: How will Donte DiVincenzo fit with the Warriors?

The Golden State Warriors’ offseason has been somewhat of a bittersweet endeavor

Amidst the departures of beloved role players and valued contributors

he fact that a championship was just won has pretty much been forgotten — or set aside toward the fringes of the subconscious.

Kevon Looney opted to stay with the organization that drafted him, cultivated his talent

and gives him the comfort of familiarity. Gary Payton II opted for financial security

a completely valid reason for someone who has toiled his way toward deserved recognition

Otto Porter Jr. was always expected to be a one-off signing

a rehabilitation project who used the prestige of a winning culture to springboard himself toward renewed relevance

What should be taken into consideration concerning the recent signing of Donte DiVincenzo to a two-year, $9.3 million contract 

a clear move to compensate for the loss of Payton II — is the Warriors’ knack

for taking injury-plagued causes and turning them into positive-impact pieces

Porter Jr. is one successful case. Shaun Livingston was forced into a life of a journeyman due to a devastating knee injury

before he found his way to the Warriors and became a foundational piece of their dynasty
