Josh Hart tries to get the Warriors guard to sign with the Knicks

Josh Hart has yet to re-sign with the New York Knicks. But it didn’t stop him from recruiting his former Villanova teammates to join him and Jalen Brunson in New York.

One of them is Golden State Warriors guard Donte DiVincenzo, who has a $4.7 million player option that he will likely decline in order to get a richer, long-term deal as an unrestricted free agent.

“Those Villanova guys in the league, I’m trying to get them to New York”, Hart told Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks in a personal interview posted June 5. “Donte, that’s my boyfriend. I was talking to him the other day”.

DiVincenzo successfully rehabilitated his value with the Warriors after his performance diminished with a left ankle injury, prompting the Milwaukee Bucks to trade him to the Sacramento Kings.
