Ryan Arcidiacono is back for his second stint with the New York Knicks this season after the organization announced they are signing the former Villanova star to his second 10-day contract on Wednesday.

A newcomer from last week’s Cam Reddish trade, Solomon Hill, was waived to make the roster spot available for a backup point guard behind Alec Burks.
Arcidiacono originally joined the Knicks in early January on a 10-day contract when the Knicks were missing Kemba Walker, who was out of the lineup with a persistent sore left knee. He was likely insurance while Walker is out, and Derrick Rose is still recovering from right ankle surgery. Arcidiacono’s debut was delayed due to a sprained ankle and was cut a week later.
After being waived by the Boston Celtics before the start of the 2021-22 season, Arcidiacono has averaged 12.7 points, 5.7 boards, 8.0 dimes, and 1.7 steals per game in six appearances for the Celtics G-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.
