I honestly thought he brought most of what Sato brought and some things Sato didn't, for a fraction of the cost. He does suck though. Yeah I'm glad we lost Sato lol. Arci is fine as a third string PG but we don't need him.

A point-guard who can't take on defenders off the dribble is always gonna find it tough staying in the NBA.

I'll miss the most him pulling the chair on bigger guys in the post, he had a few great ones.

Put him on the coaching staff and start grooming him .

Why would he join the coaching staff at 27-years-old? He's gonna play somewhere, maybe not the NBA, but somewhere.

didn't realize he'd been kicked to the curb since we signed Caruso

Glad he made @ 9 MIL in the in the NBA

Maybe he'll get lucky and end up on some contenders bench. I mean we all thought Cam Payne was out of the league or in China and next thing you know we're watching him in the NBA Finals.

kinda seems like a cheaper version of Caruso we could have kept.
Is Caruso THAT much better.....???

Haven’t you seen him slicked back and sexy? That’s a baby’s Riley if I ever saw one……DUH

Yes Caruso is that much better. AC isn’t the greatest thing since sliced bread but he is a legit NBA player. He is sneaky athletic and can stay on the court against top competition. He might be a bit overpaid by us but yes he is a huge upgrade to Arci.

You are acting like he has no skills and was an embarrassment to have on the team. He can shoot the 3. He can handle the ball well enough to not turn it over and set the offense. He plays ferocious pesky infectious defense. He's 6'3" with decent-good speed. Good attitude & team player that multiple coaches have praised.

I hope he lands somewhere in the US.

He's not a bad player, we just needed more from the PG position. He should go to a good playoff team with a pretty strong bench where he can be a third stringer and not have to do much other than come in and run the offense in a pinch.

TBH, even Temple was better than Arci, much less Caruso. Temple was a zero on offense though, Caruso & Arci can shoot the 3.
I still love his hustle and he was one of the best in the league at taking charges.

Agreed, I think his position hurts his career. You just can't have your quarterback be a zero on offense. Even LAC decided that Beverley wasn't going to work as a PG.

This. He's not a bad player at all. Archi is skilled and works hard, he just has some limitations. He'd be a good end of bench guy for a lot of teams, or a solid starter overseas. Guy can put up some legit highlights every now and then

The second coming of Rusty Larue.

It's true that GarPax, and many of the Bulls fans, have a consistent hard-on for hard playing good citizen nice guys with little talent. A midwestern blue collar mentality perhaps, that shuns brash talented potential in favor of Grabowskis that "do the things that don't show up on the stat sheet ..."

Ends up with a team stat sheet that looks like crap.

This new FO is setting a new tone. Arci will be a good college coach someday. But, the Bulls are stacked with guards.

If Ryan didnt look like an all American hockey player. Nobody on this board would care where he ended up.

Probably a good landing spot, the Warriors when fully health have a ton of guard offense and Ryan can focus on being a hustler.

I don't get the classification of working out. I don't remember him being injured, I doubt he's out of shape, if GSW don't have enough game film on a three year NBA player to know what he can do then what in the heck are they looking at?

IMO he's competing for a roster spot. I guess you'd have to be a Warriors insider to know for sure.

If it wasn’t so inflammatory...oh what the heck. Let’s be honest:

A lot of white privilege for a guy with Arci’s lack of NBA-level talent to stick so long, and actually get run, and be liked by fans for being the good ole underdog.

There’s some privilege there but I felt he stuck because he was a good lockeroom guy, hustled, and handsome as well. Wouldn’t be surprised if Paxson oddly saw a lot of himself in Ryan. He was definitely a front office favorite.

AK isn’t american born and I doubt Mark Eversley gives a damn about Ryan which is why he’s looking for work.

I mention looks because anyone who’s worked in the workforce knows being attractive and personable can keep you around longer than what you deserve. If Ryan looked like Rusty LaRue he’d been off the team 2 seasons ago.
