“I love what they both bring. JaMychal is so tough, he can spread the floor, he can rebound. He gives us tremendous frontcourt depth. Donnet is a champion and a combo guard to help us on the backcourt And those guys are going to have great years for us. I can feel it,” Thompson told reporters.
The Warriors lost three major pieces of their rotation this summer – Otto Porter Jr., Gary Payton II and Nemanja Bejelica. In return, he replaced those players with DiVincenzo and Green, who should be set to play key roles in Golden State’s rotation.
Thompson is not the only member of the Warriors organization who is confident in DiVincenzo and Green, however. Earlier this summer, head coach Steve Kerr detailed their roles and how much he believes in them both.
