Bulls set to bring back Arcidiacono
Arcidiacono, 24, averaged 2.0 points and 1.0 rebounds in 24 games during his rookie season with the Bulls.
Second-year guard Ryan Arcidiacono will re-sign with the Chicago Bulls on a partially guaranteed one-year deal, according to multiple reports Saturday.
Arcidiacono, 24, averaged 2.0 points and 1.0 rebounds in 24 games during his rookie season with the Bulls. He signed with the team as an undrafted free agent after a stellar career at Villanova, where he earned the Most Outstanding Player award in the Wildcats' 2016 NCAA championship run.
The Bulls possess a crowded backcourt with Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, Cameron Payne and others. But Arcidiacono could earn a reserve role in training camp if he builds upon the trust that he established with coach Fred Hoiberg during his rookie season.
Arcidiacono shot 41.5 percent from the field and 29.0 percent from beyond the arc in 2017-18. He also averaged 1.5 assists per game.
