The Knicks have agreed to terms with former Pittsburgh wing Jamel Artis on a contract that will ensure him a spot at Knicks training camp, the details of which have yet to be released, per Ian Begley of ESPN.
Knicks have reached an agreement with Pittsburgh's Jamel Artis, league sources tell ESPN. Artis impressed the club during Summer League.— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) August 18, 2017
Begley then followed his original tweet to add that the Knicks’ lone remaining two-way contract will likely be given to either Jamel Artis or Nigel Hayes, who just yesterday agreed to terms with the Knicks to at least earn him a spot at training camp. Previous news about Artis being invited to training camp was apparently preliminary, and the two sides have now made the agreement official.
Expectation last month was that NYK would leave one 2-way deal open for training camp. If so, Artis, Hayes & others will be competing for it https://t.co/N6dztwDe60— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) August 18, 2017
Artis averaged 8.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 18 minutes per game during the Orlando Summer League. More impressive, Artis shot 49% from the field and 41% from deep. A full breakdown of his Summer League play can be seen here.
