NBA Rumor: Sacramento Kings aren’t ready to give DiVincenzo a qualifying offer

DiVincenzo at Press Conference

The pandemonium of NBA free agency begins in one day, but the Kings got a head start by making a few moves. Donte DiVincenzo became an unrestricted free agent after Sacramento rejected to extend him a qualifying offer before the deadline, according to sources cited by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Woj anticipates “significant interest” in the fourth-year guard who played in 25 games for the Kings and averaged 10.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 3.6 assists.

At the trade deadline of the previous campaign, Sacramento acquired Vincenzo DiVincenzo. This resulted in the departure of Marvin Bagley III from Sactown in exchange for different players from four other teams.

DiVincenzo had a nearly immediate effect and provided the Kings with just what they required of him as a reserve. The 6-foot-4 guard, who had already won a championship with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2021, used his skill and expertise to help the Kings in novel ways.

Kings also have set their eyes on Chimezie Metu

According to Wojnarowski, who cited sources, the Kings also decided to exercise their team option on 6-foot-9 power forward Chimezie Metu for the 2022–23 campaign. For Sacramento last season, Metu averaged a career-high 8.9 points and 5.6 rebounds in 21 minutes per game.
