ARCIDIACONO RETURNS TO THE BULLS ORGANISATION ON FEBRUARY 23

Not this season, anyhow. This Cat is not coming home.

Ryan Arcidiacono has rejoined the Chicago Bulls organisation, as per Michael Scotto of Hoops Hype. He signed with G League Windy City on Friday. Despite playing little in New York, Arcidiacono has developed a bit of a cult following among Knicks supporters, mostly because of his relationship with Josh Hart, Donte DiVincenzo, and Jalen Brunson, his college colleagues. During their time as Villanova University stars, the four contributed to the team’s run to the 2016 national title.

Arcidiacono played with the Bulls in both Chicago and Windy City over the first four seasons of his professional career (2017–21). With the Bulls in 2018–19, he played in 81 games (32 starts) and averaged 6.7 points and 3.3 rebounds, which was the finest season of his professional career.

Windy City just defeated the Westchester Knicks affiliate 98-84 on Thursday. It will play its next game at home against the Indiana Mad Ants on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET on Tubi, with Arcidiacono in tow.
