Bulls reward Summer League standout Ryan Arcidiacono with a two-way deal
Former Villanova Wildcat Ryan Arcidiacono will have another shot at making it to the NBA.
The Chicago Bulls recently announced that they have rewarded the 23-year-old with a two-way deal, giving him the opportunity to compete for a roster spot once training camp starts.

Arcidiacono was part of the Bulls’ Summer League team where he showcased his skills in front of scouts. He averaged 5.8 points, on 41.7 percent shooting from the field, to go along with 3.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists in five appearances. He also played 47 games last season for the Austin Spurs of the G-League and became a fixture of the team’s rotation. The 6-foot-3 hybrid guard averaged 27.5 minutes of court action per outing.
It won’t be easy for him from here on out, as he is expected to go up against the likes of Kris Dunn, Jerian Grant, and Cameron Payne, who are all looking to have more playing time this coming season. Should Arcidiacono not make their final roster, he will be assigned to the G-League once again to further hone his skills, and await a call up once the team feels he’s ready to move up.
