The “Arch of Dimes” — acquired me; discuss to Wikipedia — spent his first 4 seasons within the NBA with the Chicago Bulls, the place he maintained a profession common of 4.8 factors per recreation in 17.6 minutes per contest. His finest total season got here as a sophomore in 2018-19, when he began 32 of 81 video games for the Bulls, averaging 6.7 factors in 24.2 minutes an evening. Arcidiacono appeared in simply 44 video games final season and struggled to work his means into an everyday Bulls rotation that was heavy on guards as is.
He reportedly labored out with the Golden State Warriors earlier this week earlier than agreeing to a cope with the Celtics.
Regardless of scant taking part in time within the huge leagues, Arcidiacono had carved out a roster spot with the Bulls previous to his deal expiring on the finish of this season. He spent restricted time within the G League with the Austin Spurs (2016-17) and the Windy Metropolis Bulls (2017-18), showing in 84 video games over the course of these two seasons and averaging 9.8 factors per recreation.

Extra possible is that Arcidiacono finds himself returning to the G League, this time suiting up for the Maine Pink Claws. And no, not simply as a result of he grew up a Sixers fan.
