The Clippers have waived Jamel Artis.
The was expected with the Clippers still having 17 guaranteed contracts on the books. This will help the Clippers slip Artis onto their G-League roster.

Jamel Artis is signing a partially-guaranteed deal with the Clippers.
Artis was waived by the Kings earlier this week but quickly found a new home. Given the fact that the Clippers currently have 17 guaranteed deals on the books, there's no shot we see Artis on the opening night roster barring a big trade.

The Kings have waived Jamel Artis.
Artis was signed to a two-year deal at the end of July but obviously there weren't many guaranteed dollars there. His limited action in the preseason suggested that he wouldn't be playing much despite good opportunities on the wing.

The Kings will sign Jamel Artis to a two-year contract.
Artis spent 15 games with the Magic last season, averaging 5.1 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.5 triples in 18.6 minutes a night. The Kings need a natural small forward and this will help deepen the roster at that spot somewhat but it's unlikely to be a transaction that moves the needle in the long-term. They'll still pigeonhole a power forward or shooting guard into the starting three spot. As for Artis, it's likely that the second year is un-guaranteed but there are definitely going to be minutes available for him to make an impression.

The Magic will not give a qualifying offer to Jamel Artis so he will become an unrestricted free agent.
Artis wasn't a pivotal part of the Magic rotation last season and it's hard to consider him a very attractive free agent target. If he does get a job, it could be in the G-League or on the end of a bench.

Jamel Artis picked up 22 minutes in Wednesday's season finale but scored just three points with five rebounds on 1-of-5 from the field.
Artis had games of 16, 18 and 12 points earlier in April but combined for just 10 over his final three. Those three performances were not enough to drag Artis, who played just 32 games, into the top-425.

Jamel Artis joined the starting lineup and scored 12 points (two 3s) and added six boards and a block in Friday’s loss to the Magic.
Artis started with Aaron Gordon (calf) out and continued his recent run of decent play. Over the three games, Artis has gotten 15.3 points and 2.0 threes per game on 54.3 percent from the field. That was good enough for standard league 9-cat value over the stretch so he’s an option for deeper leagues. Khem Birch also scored 12 points with a block and has been a low-end blocks specialist over the last week with 1.5 per game and good efficiency.

Aaron Gordon (sore right calf) has been ruled out for Friday’s game vs. the Hornets.
The season is winding down and the Magic have no incentive to play a banged up Gordon, so it looks like Jamel Artis will get the start. This has the makings of a very ugly game and we wouldn’t recommend using Artis.

Jamel Artis established a new career-high in scoring for the second straight game, netting 18 points on 8-of-13 from the field with a 3-pointer and a block in 32 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.
Artis scored 16 against the Knicks but did one bucket better tonight, though the rest of his line leaves plenty to be desired. It looks like he'll play with the Magic down to the very end of their organizational depth chart at shooting guard, so if you need some points down the stretch then Artis might be the guy to call upon in deep leagues.

Jamel Artis established a new career-high in Tuesday's win over the Knicks with 16 points on 6-of-10 from the field, adding six rebounds, two assists, a steal and three triples in 32 minutes.
The minutes and rebounds were also career-highs for the rookie. The Magic don't have a ton of appealing options at shooting guard these days so it wouldn't be a shock to see more of Artis over the next few games but he's unlikely to be worth your attention outside of very deep leagues.

Jamel Artis had just two points, three rebounds and four assists in 12 minutes on Thursday.
Artis played his first game since December 23rd and couldn’t get going. Given the state of this team, he could see a few more minutes in the stretch run which could make him an option but only in extremely deep leagues. Otherwise there’s not much to be very hyped about.

Jonathan Isaac and fellow rookies Khem Birch, Wes Iwundu, Rodney Purvis and Jamel Artis are expected to see major minutes moving forward.
With 12 games to go in their season, and with the playoffs out of the question, Magic officials hope to accelerate the learning curve for their youngsters. The team wants to put them on the court over the final 3½ weeks of the season, evaluate them and give them opportunities to grow. Isaac should be picked up in all leagues as he is expected to see his minutes increase even more as the season unfolds. Birch is also worth a look in deeper leagues as he can provide plenty of defensive stats. It’s unclear how much playing time veterans like Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic will receive but owners should hold onto them for now.

The Magic have recalled Jamel Artis from the Lakeland Magic.
The Magic will be looking to give their younger players more minutes down the stretch, but at this stage in the season there is no reason to add Artis in any league.

Shelvin Mack will start at shooting guard for the thinned out Magic on Sunday. Look for D.J. Augustin to also get some extra minutes in this one, as Orlando will use any and all alternatives…
