Storyline: Ryan Arcidiacono Free Agency

10 rumors in this storyline

Even while Arcidiacono has been a pleasant surprise, he’s still playing on a one-year contract, so his NBA career will be in limbo this summer. He said he’s not thinking about the future. “I try to take it day by day and go from there, but I think I’ve played well enough that something will happen,” Arcidiacono said. “But you’ve just got to stay humble and stay hungry and keep taking advantage of the last 12 games and take it one day at a time.”

Not surprisingly, Bulls coach Jim Boylen was emphatic when asked if Ryan Arcidiacono has proved himself to be an NBA player. He was a two-way player last season, spending most of his time with the Windy City Bulls. “Absolutely. Archie’s a winning player,” Boylen said. “He has improved. When he got here, he didn’t look at the rim. He’d get in the paint and he wouldn’t look at the rim. Everybody would pull back and he didn’t want to shoot it. He has learned how to finish.”

The Bulls are continuing to fill out the margins of their roster, agreeing to sign former Villanova point guard Ryan Arcidiacono to a two-way contract, a source with knowledge of the agreement told The Athletic. Arcidiacono played for the Bulls’ Summer League team in Las Vegas after going undrafted in 2016 and playing last season in the G League with the Austin Spurs. Arcidiacono had previously signed a deal to play the upcoming season in Italy with JuveCaserta Basket, but the team was recently excluded from the Italian league Serie A due to financial concerns.

According to a Western Conference executive, Allen exemplifies where the league is going at his position. “I think the center position is changing and he’s working to become a shooter from the corner and he’s a high-level roller,” the executive said over the phone. “He’s got the tools to be a switcher on defense. I don’t know if he’s going to be elite, but he’s got the potential to do that. If you look at what the center position will look like in the future, he’s got that stuff.” “He has upside,” one Western Conference general manager texted. “Don’t know if he’s elite.”
