It's here. Dec. 15 is when players who signed free agency deals over the summer can officially be traded, including New York Knicks' Donte DiVincenzo. He signed a four-year, $50 million deal over the summer.

New York still has yet to make its big move for a star, and that move isn't expected to happen during the 2023-24 season. Depending on how the offseason goes, maybe the Knicks will cash in their chips. If that were to happen, DiVincenzo could be included in the deal, but other than that, there's no reason for New York to trade the guard.

3. This front office doesn't make impulsive moves

Signing Donte DiVincenzo was New York's main priority in free agency. It took until day two for the two sides to agree to a deal, and after that, the Knicks kept quiet. They did what they set out to do, and that was that.

Outside of the fact there isn't a solid reason to trade DiVincenzo, the current regime has proven it isn't one to make impulsive moves. Instead, they make calculated moves. New York wouldn't have signed DiVincenzo to a four-year deal a little over five months ago if there was a chance he'd be traded a quarter into the season.

If the right deal were to come along involving DiVincenzo, the Knicks would obviously have to do their due diligence and consider it. Outside of that, don't expect him to go anywhere anytime soon.
