Maybe it will be a game made in the Ryan Arcidiacono-Tom Thibodeau Union basketball paradise.

This is the opinion of George Halkovaj Villanova, assistant coach, who led Arcidiacono at Villanova in 2012-16.

“He resigned,” Helkovaj told The Post. “He’s a student of the game. Thibs, like a coach [Jay] Wright is demanding and the guys love to have the upper hand. And that’s definitely one of his strengths, bringing up that mentality. He is happy to have the opportunity. He believes he belongs to this league. ”

On Thursday, the Knicks officially announced the signing of a 10-day deal with Arcidiacono, topping Wayne Selden’s list of resignations.

The Villanova champion is still recovering from an injured G-League ankle with the Maine Celtics. After four seasons with the Bulls, Arcidiacono went to Boston’s training camp, but they left him.

Even when Nicks goalkeeper Kemba Walker returns with a left knee injury, it is unlikely he will play in consecutive sets again this season. Derrick Rose, meanwhile, could be sidelined until the end of February due to an ankle surgery.

Ryan Arcidiacono and Tom Tibodo

Alec Burks is the Knicks ’current starting guard and Arcidiacono could be a key backup on some nights.

“Our scouts followed him,” Tibodu said before the Nicks took on the Celtics on Thursday. “They love him so much. I watched him play with the Bulls. I watched him play at Villanova. We’ll see what it will be like. I like what he does. We’ll see what he does for the team. can add. So that’s a plus. ”

Asked if it would be a long-term deal, Tibodu said: “It’s clear we love him. That’s why we brought him in. We’ll see how it goes. ”

In college, Chris Jenkins suffered an ankle injury during the Arcidiacono G-League show, best known for his winning shot in the 2016 NCAA tournament title game.

“He somehow recovered,” Tibodo said. “He played in the G-League for a while. This is one of those things. The guys bend their heels. He is recovering and ready to leave. ”

The defense is Arcidiacono’s visiting card as he has scored 3 points in 374 percent of his 204 games.

“He’s playing hard – that’s the most important thing,” Helkovaj said. “He fights for any ownership. Guys who play hard are able to show play and overcome any shortcomings. He is a very intellectual defender. He finds out who they are up against, their strengths and weaknesses, and what the team wants to achieve. He’s very smart about it. ”

Ryan Arsidiyakono played for G League Maine Celtics earlier this season.

Zoom said Tuesday night that Wright had contacted his former bodyguard.

I saw the rumor, “Is this true?” I said. Said Wright. He said, “Yes,” and I said, “That’s great, man, I love you.” ”

“We always talk about basketball and players when we see each other in the summer,” Wright said. “Leon is very similar to what Ryan is doing in the game. He loves tough, selfless talent, team players. I know Tom Tibdodo does the same. These two are a great couple. I know Ryan is very much in tune with this culture and he is proud to be a part of it. ”
