As training camp approaches, the New York Knicks are filling out the bottom of their roster. With this in mind, they brought back an old friend from last season, re-signing point guard Ryan Arcidiacono.

Behold the pomp and circumstance of the Ryan Arcidiacono re-signing!

Arcidiacono played a grand total of 10 games and 76 minutes for the Knicks last season. He was signed and released from the roster several times over the course of the season, if I recall. He actually appears several times in some of the late-season Obi Toppin and Immanuel Quickley highlight packages, just kind of standing around while those two were doing awesome shit.

This probably doesn’t matter a whole lot, but Arcidiacono also has a connection to the Knicks’ big free agent signing, having played with Jalen Brunson at Villanova.

I’ve seen a few freak outs on Twitter — they’re just rolling out the same team that sucked last year! — and while I agree that Thibs can’t be trusted to play the right guys, I doubt he’s going to play Arcidiacono over someone good. The dude is just a training camp and practice body. He seems nice enough, so good for him! Welcome back to the Knicks, Ryan! I wish your name was easier to spell.
