Arcidiacono To Get Qualifying Offer From Bulls

The Bulls will extend a qualifying offer to guard Ryan Arcidiacono but don’t plan to give one to Wayne Selden, Cody Westerlund of tweets.

In his second season with the Bulls, Arcidiacono appeared in 81 games and started 32, averaging 6.7 PPG and 3.3 APG in 24.2 MPG while shooting 37.3% from long range. His qualifying offer is a modest $1,818,486 and the Bulls, who hold his Early Bird rights, can now match any offer for the 6’3” Villanova product.

Selden appeared in 43 games, including 13 starts, with the Bulls after being acquired in early January from the Grizzlies. The Kansas alum averaged 8.0 PPG and 1.7 APG in 22.9 MPG. His qualifying offer was $1,931,189 but now he’ll head into unrestricted free agency unless the Bulls have a last-minute change of heart.

By making efforts to retain Arcidiacono and drafting point guard Coby White, Kris Dunn‘s status on the team is all the more precarious.

    I don’t understand the Bulls Anti Dunn stance? I get he’s not a star but neither is LaVine, Carter, Markkanen, Porter. All these guys are C level players, to single out Dunn just doesn’t make sense.

      I think it is mostly LaVine and Markkanen have shown signs of becoming above average players, Porter and Carter they only have had them on the team for last season, while last season Dunn regressed from 17-18 performance and was injured some more.

    Dunn still has a spot on this team, and an important one. You’ll likely see Dunn as a combo guard, and a defensive force coming off the bench. Moving Dunn off the ball, could really help his career out, especially if he improves his range.

    Arc won’t be anythin more than their last guard off the bench, or in case of an injury. The Bulls will even still likely add a veteran PG in free agency, and Dunn will still have a solid role on this team, despite more people thinking he’ll likely be gone..

    Dunn just isn’t a point. And he’s not a starter. There’s nothing wrong with that. When dudes get drafted high the expectations sometimes are also too high. He’s going to have a decent career as a backup if he can stay healthy. And once again nothing wrong with that at all. Even if it’s not in Chicago
