According to coach Fred Hoiberg, Ryan Arcidiacono will be the Bulls backup point guard for their seasoner opener on Thursday.
Arcidiacono will backup Jerian Grant on opening night against the Raptors. Right now Kris Dunn (finger) and Cameron Payne (foot) are both out so Archy is just a backup by default. The Bulls also recently signed Kay Felder who could steal some of those minutes once he is acclimated. No reason to add Arcidiacono right now as he is just a backup and likely a temporary one at that. The 23-year-old does has some deep dynasty league appeal. He played in six preseason games and averaged 2.5 points, 4.0 assists, 1.2 boards and 0.8 steals in 12 minutes per game.
