Arcidiacono delivered 2 points and one steal in Saturday's 113-103 loss to the Clippers.
The Villanova product has now been with the parent club for seven games, averaging 11 minutes, 1.7 points and 1.1 assists per game. The sharp shooting point guard adds some floor spacing for a Chicago team that could use a boost in outside shooting with the trade of Nikola Mirotic.
Arcidiacono logged five minutes of action in the Bulls' season opener on Oct. 19 but has spent the vast majority of the year in the G-League. In 18 games with the Windy City Bulls, the sharp-shooting guard has averaged 13.2 points per game on 50 percent shooting, including an impressive 48.5 percent clip from deep. He likely won't get much run with the NBA squad.
Arcidiacono will not be the team's backup point guard during Saturday's game against the Spurs, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The rookie may have already lost his job after one game. In five minutes, the only statistic he recorded was one assist. Coach Fred Hoiberg has instead opted to give Kay Felder the job Saturday. Felder finished Thursday's season opener by dropped six points and six assists.
The Bulls added Kay Felder over the weekend, but coach Fred Hoiberg said Tuesday that Felder is not yet up to speed, so he'll lean on Arcidiacono to back up Jerian Grant for the time being while Kris Dunn battles a hand injury. A former standout at Villanova, Arcidiacono is on a two-way contract, meaning he'll likely spend most of the season with the G-League's Windy City Bulls. In accordance with his two-way deal, Arcidiacono can spend 45 days in the NBA, but the clock on that does not begin until Oct. 23.
Arcidiacono went undrafted back in 2016 and spent this past season playing for the Austin Spurs of the G-League. Most recently, he took part in the Las Vegas Summer League with the Bulls, where he averaged 5.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists across five games. While those numbers aren't particularly impressive, it was enough to earn him a two-way contract with Chicago. That means he'll spend the majority of the upcoming season with the team's G-League affiliate, but can also be recalled for up to 45 days with the Bulls to practice and participate in games, which should be extremely valuable for the 23-year-old guard's development.
