  • Donte DiVincenzo Bucks

Former Villanova guard Donte DiVincenzo wasn't expected to declare for the NBA draft until his monster performance against MI in the national championship game. The school definitely turned a profit off of him as all of college sports do these days, but those days are about to change for Donte DiVincenzo. Teammate D.J. Wilson recently posted a photo on instagram, showing that DiVincenzo's Wells Fargo bank accounts only have a combined $3.71 ($2.68 in checking, $1.03 in savings).

All of this will be far-gone memories by the time the rookie sees that first check hit the wire, as he is bound to make north of $2 million during his first year in the league, according to rookie-scale salaries for mid-round draftees.

The Milwaukee Bucks announced they have signed first-round draft pick Donte DiVincenzo to a rookie scale contract.


As Wilson wrote in the post, which was captured by Yahoo Sports, DiVincenzo's "life is boutta change" because the first-round pick is slated to make about $2 million as a rookie and at least $4.4 million over his first two years in the National Basketball Association.

You wonder how much Villanova pocketed from his 31-point performance in the NCAA title game.

DiVincenzo appeared in 85 games, making 12 starts, during his three seasons with the Wildcats.
