1. Ryan Arcidiacono

Ryan Arcidiacono’s surprising success has been the most fun story of this not-so-fun Bulls season.

“Arch” entered this season as a guy who looked like he would be playing behind Cameron Payne on the bench, and he’s finishing this season as arguably the Bulls’ best point guard. Who could’ve seen that coming?

Kris Dunn can still do more things on both the offensive and defensive ends of the court, but Arch is more reliable. You know what you’re going to get from Arch when he comes in the game, and that’s what you want from your backup point guard. He works extremely hard, he’s incredibly savvy (on both offense and defense), he can shoot the three-ball and he doesn’t turn the ball over.

What more can you ask for?

On the season, Arch is averaging 6.2 points per game on solid .444/.370/.890 shooting splits to go along with 3.5 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 24.7 minutes per game. He’s quickly developing into the Fred VanVleet type of backup point guard that winning teams desperately need.

The Bulls absolutely need to make Ryan Arcidiacono a part of their future.
