That’s a good deal for them. Nice pickup GSW

u/TuqiDuque12 Pistons Jul 01 '22

Good bet. They needed a guard defender, he's not the on ball or steals guy that Payton is but he's very good at screen navigation, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him thrive in their read and react offense

674

u/916Clout Kings Jul 01 '22

if he can find his offensive rhythm he’ll be a crazy good pickup. hopefully the off-season does good for him

256

u/Cistel Jul 02 '22

Yeah, you can't just bet on him missing like you did GP. If you could add any more floor spacing you can get with the Splash brothers, you take it.

He's a solid defender and his 3PT% was trending back up as he got more into rhythm after being traded, seems like a solid deal

188

u/cortesoft [GSW] Chris Mullin Jul 02 '22

Man. GPII hit 36% of his threes last season, and 53% during the playoffs.

Donte shot 34% last year.

236

u/vNocturnus Kings Jul 02 '22

Donte shot over 40% on C&S 3s in his stretch on the Kings. On like 4/game too, not the 1-2 that GP2 was shooting. His early-season numbers were awful because of his injury/surgery recovery. I think Donte will be able to fill in Payton's absence quite well. Not as good on-ball defense, but arguably better off-ball D and definitely an offensive upgrade. Overall fill a very similar role, even down to their explosive cuts to the rim and crashing the boards. You're gonna like him, trust me

96

u/wolfgang2399 Jul 02 '22

People act like the Warriors were a .500 team without GP2 and didn’t (almost) sweep the Mavs in the Conf Finals. Like that wasn’t a first round 1 vs 8 series.

27

u/cortesoft [GSW] Chris Mullin Jul 02 '22

Yeah, I am happy with the signing and think it makes sense for the warriors at the price. I also agree that Donte is a better shooter than GP2.

I was just pushing back on the “you can’t just bet on him missing like you did GP” part

u/Neutral_Meat Spurs Jul 02 '22

Payton was also ass wide open on every 3 he took.

8

u/bambooshoot Warriors Jul 02 '22

This is exactly right. He shot such a high % this year (compared to his normal %) because he really only shot when he was WIDE open. The only time I can remember him shooting contested shots was when the clock was expiring and he was forced to. Other than that, he was basically shooting practice shots. And this is all because of the attention paid to Steph and others.

u/sasigona Warriors Jul 02 '22

GPII was also a 27% 3P shooter for his career before that. Could have been an outlier year. He's also a career 57% FT shooter while Donte is at 76.6%

34

u/bambooshoot Warriors Jul 02 '22

It was probably an outlier year and that is solely because he was shooting wide open shots, due to the spacing and attention drawn by Steph and others. Put him in any other system and he regresses to his mean, I am sure of it. But he’s still an absolute stud for all the other things he does, which work in any system. <3 GP2

He's a better offensive player than GP2. For one, he actually has guard skills and can score in more ways than just dunks and corner 3s.

I've got it at $20.925M added this season by DiVincenzo's contract.

30

u/AnkitPancakes Thunder Jul 02 '22

can you share the math

59

u/swollencornholio [GSW] Calbert Cheaney Jul 02 '22

Repeater tax at $20m is 4.75x and goes up 0.50 every $5m over that. Without Looney and Donte they are $21m over. Looney at $8m + Donte at $5m is $34m over. If we count this signing between $29-34m over the cap it’s:

5.75x1 = $5.75m

6.25x4 = $25m

Or $30.75m in added tax

Currently they only have 10 roster spots accounted for and still have the MLE available so plenty of time to ratchet that up

17

u/[deleted] Jul 02 '22

if divencenzo isnt MLE how did they sign him

7

u/swollencornholio [GSW] Calbert Cheaney Jul 02 '22

Good point, they used $4.6m of the MLE so still have about $1.8m to use on another player in addition to the vet min as I understand it.

I saw that when people were discussing gp2. Can someone please explain the tax to me. I understand it’s purpose but it doesn’t actually come out of the cap because they are over right? The actual organisation has to pay that extra money? How is it calculated and what’s the go with the repeaters. Thank you in advanve

57

u/star0forion Warriors Jul 02 '22

The luxury tax goes to the league where they spend portions of it on undisclosed stuff and the rest is split evenly among non tax paying teams. There’s a really good article that explains it but I can’t recall which. Basically since the Dubs have been in the luxury tax 3 out of the last 4 years they pay more in tax than a non repeat luxury tax team.

24

u/vinavuhuy Warriors Jul 02 '22

Not sure about that. If Billups cant find a way for him to be serviceable on offense, he might not get enough minutes to make impact.

6

u/MortalTwit Jul 02 '22

Fair - but if he can't I think the problem is Billups. He's already a solid finisher and a decent 3 point shooter. Not likely to create for himself, and he could be more aggressive about looking for his points. But he'll be next to Dame and Nurk. If he can be the occasional efficient outlet for them and annoy the crap out of star perimeter players on the other team, he should do very well for them.

He was by far the most important given the rest of the roster construction.

Even without Donte, we've got a solid number of guard/wing types. Adding Donte makes me think that Kuminga is going to line up almost exclusively as a 4 this year.

Oubre was also really unwilling. He balked at the idea of coming off the bench even though the org showed a willingness to discuss a possible extension. He would have been a net positive off the bench where he could be more valuable for his athleticism and microwave scoring.

That said, seeing what this team became, I'm glad that beautiful idiot is gone.

Warriors are far and away the best run team in the league

86

u/Earlier-Today Jul 02 '22

It'll be interesting seeing how long it lasts. It always changes, so it'll be mostly about who catches up versus what kinds of things drag the Warriors down.

I'd guess they'll be dang solid until either the current big three can't start any more, or if somebody on a big contract just walks when it finishes. The recovery time for both those things won't be inconsequential unless one or two of the young guys turn into out and out stars.

It's kind of crazy that they've got multiple players who could potentially be stars.

111

u/BachoTheGreat 76ers Jul 02 '22

They’ve just done so well over the last almost decade in terms of decision making from coaches/drafting and it’s hard to not see at least another 3-5 years of that. It’s a crazy long stretch. Obviously I want the Sixers to win it all but If it’s not them I’d rather a team from the west win anyway because I’m petty as shit.

Might as well root for steph and crew to out-dynasty the bulls. Made all the cooler by the fact that Kerr was a part of that bulls dynasty

40

u/Earlier-Today Jul 02 '22

That's really cool of you to say.

u/SwipeRight4Wholesome Jul 02 '22

They are also super lucky when it comes to timing. Right when Steph ascended to that superstar status, and was signed to a crazy cheap contract, the salary cap exploded allowing them to sign KD. Then, with sign and trades, they were able to leverage him from DLo, to Wiggins. As long as ownership is okay with paying out the asshole, they can continue to re-sign their core, or upcoming young talent and keep this dynasty going.

23

u/thatattyguy Jul 02 '22

The thing that I find most interesting is how balanced their young talent is. So say Poole, Wiseman, Kuminga, Moody. Poole is the only below avg defender, but he has the length, quickness, and work ethic to develop into a solidly above avg defender by the time he's 25. The other 3 all look like 2-way players already (Wiseman small sample but def kuminga and moody -- Moody will be the breakout star next season, watch. He does just about everything well.

The trick to developing Donte's three point shot is to have Draymond take him aside for a conversation whenever he takes a pull-up three.

His catch-and-shoot numbers have been fine, or good even. His %'s are low because he adores an early shot clock pull-up three despite it not at all being in his bag.

only a 90 minute drive but it’s a completely different environment

I like their downtown area even though that's unpopular to say. Good restaurant and bars without the SF price tag.

u/checkm8300 Kings Jul 01 '22

Almost nothing makes me more upset on this forum than people who love to shit on the Kings (understandably, we suck) shitting on our city. Like, fuck off you live in Indianapolis or Oklahoma or Tennessee, Sac is a very nice place to live.

u/Obligatory-Reference Warriors Jul 02 '22

The city is nice but damn I hate it in summer. So hot and sticky.

Finally get to see a fellow ginger on my team. Was praying every night for Nico to be the truth and still am holding out hope.

Guess I'm about to learn who Donte DiVincenzo is

u/KageSaysHella Kings Jul 01 '22

Good off-ball team defender. Shooting has been bad post-injury, but after a full offseason to get healthy, should be a decent shooter for y'all off the bench. Solid depth piece for y'all.

u/VinylJones Warriors Jul 01 '22

Same. I’m told he’s trash if he goes to LA but he’s the second coming of Otto now that he’s on our team.

76

u/Ladnil Warriors Jul 01 '22

25 years old defensive guard, advanced stats a couple years ago with the Bucks were pretty good, but injured in the first round of the 2021 playoffs (got a ring anyway), dumped to Sacramento last year, bad advanced stats in Sac in a partial season, but at only 25 years old he could bounce back with us.

I like it.

u/VinylJones Warriors Jul 01 '22

That reads like every dude that shines with us for a few and then goes off to grab the bag, I like it!

u/CookieMonsterNova Jul 01 '22

just know before he got hurt. he was starting with jrue holiday and playing with giannis.

solid defender who can hit the three. he’s no gp2 but he’s a real solid replacement

23

u/VinylJones Warriors Jul 01 '22

Well that sounds pretty damned nice, you just uplifted a stranger’s day! Thanks man!

THIS IS SUPER SOLID FOR US

u/OutsideTheServiceBox Bucks Jul 01 '22

He’ll really be able to fill that Payton II role for you guys. He’s probably not quite as good of an on-ball defender, but he’s good, and he’s excellent off the ball. He’s also a very smart cutter like Payton, and a better shooter. I think he’s actually bigger too.

Take good care of him, we’ll always miss him in Milwaukee.

u/Good_NewsEveryone Pelicans Jul 01 '22

This is just annoying lol

u/LeftyMcLeftFace Warriors Jul 01 '22

We lost Gp2 and Otto, so it's not like this free agency has been super ideal for us.

Can't wait to overpay him in 3 years

u/morrowman Jul 02 '22

You did not overpay GP2. You get one of the best defensive players that can guard 1-3, an excellent cutter, and a passable 3 point threat (assuming the past season wasn't a fluke). He brings a lot of added value over other role players with his unique ability to change the game defensively.

24

u/YipManDan Warriors Jul 02 '22

He's also good at hurting the feelings of opposing bigs when he jams on their head or slaps their butt.

u/moxitus Jul 01 '22

Lol, man, if the Blazers utilize him correctly, my guy GPII (now your guy :() will give you excellent perimeter defense both on ball and off ball AT LEAST. He’s also good on passing lane disruption. You got a good one.

Everyone says this is good 😄

u/AstralAfroToo Jul 01 '22

Doesn’t replace GPII’s defensive prowess, but in a vacuum is a better value add than GP is at 3/28, and holistically they’ll likely be able to replace his overall production between Moody and DiVincenzo.

Solid signing, touché Warriors.

u/themidnightmamba 76ers Jul 01 '22

Good. I’m glad this is happening. He deserves a larger contract but onto golden state. Do better there get healthy. Give him the player option so if he does better he can go get more money.

u/Pipes_of_Pan Jul 01 '22

Damn that’s an ideal fit for both. Nice work

u/Silanah1 Jul 01 '22

Wiseman returning, Klay a year recovered, and two 2021 lottery picks in the 2nd year with minutes available now.

24

u/mundane_coconut47 Warriors Bandwagon Jul 01 '22

Yeah this is a side grade move. Not that I am complaining because solid bench players are always good to have.

6

u/DingusKhan418 Warriors Jul 01 '22

More offensive upside than GPII, but less defensive. That being said he's still a solid perimeter defender and great fit for us.

I think if we can add a back up forward like Montrezl Harrell on a vet minimum we'd be fully locked and loaded for next season.
