1. Donte DiVincenzo

Donte DiVincenzo was New York's big free agency splash. It took until the second day of free agency for the Knicks to get their guy, but he eventually agreed to sign a four-year, $50 million deal.

The signing came a few weeks after New York wrapped up a postseason where it shot 29% from three. When it was reported that the Knicks were interested in DiVincenzo, it made perfect sense. He shot a career-high 39.7% from deep in his lone season with the Warriors.

So far in 2023-24, DiVincenzo is averaging 8.5 points per game, shooting 40% from three. His best game in a Knicks uniform thus far came on Nov. 18 when he shot 7-of-10 from three for 25 points in a 122-108 win over the Hornets.

DiVincenzo has done his job well. There are slight issues with his game, like his careless passes and struggle to finish at the rim, but those things can be fixed. Neither are reasons to trade him.

New York likely isn't going to trade DiVincenzo this season. Simply put, there's no reason for them to do so. He's done what's been asked of him, and the more games he plays for the Knicks, the more comfortable he gets.

If New York can secure another playoff berth, DiVincenzo's experience will be that much more valuable, as he's been part of a championship team.
