Knicks Sign Jamel Artis To Partially Guaranteed Deal

AUGUST 21: The Knicks have officially signed Artis, the team announced in a press release. It’ll be a one-year deal, and will likely end up with Artis joining the Westchester Knicks, New York’s G League affiliate.

JUNE 24: The Knicks have agreed to a partially guaranteed contract with undrafted free agent Jamel Artis out of Pitt, posts Ian Begley on ESPN Now.

The 6’7″ senior swingman will be part of the Knicks’ summer league team and will be given a chance to earn a place on the roster in training camp. He averaged 18.2 points per game with the Panthers this year and had a season-high 43 against Louisville.

New York has already promised training camp deals to Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes and Vanderbilt’s Luke Kornet, so the competition for the final roster spots will be intense. In addition, Florida’s Canyon Barry will be auditioned during summer league for a possible training camp invitation.

      I must admit that Phil’s scouting staff is on point. Now only if he gets his head out of his ass and let’s Hornaceck coach the team then the team will be better in about 2-3 years.

        • Thanks, I see that now. I saw the “m” and thought it meant “minutes”. That makes more sense. My bad.

    It’s funny how everyone says that no one wants to play in NY, Knicks are pathetic and all that BS. Melo has said he wants to stay, Rose said he wants to re sign at a discounted rate as well. Porzingas said he wants to stay in NY. As bad as it is players still want to come. Knicks will be a playoff team next year. That’s right u heard it here first

      I’m a knicks fan but rose left and these G leaguers aren’t really a good indicator of great players wanting to play in NY
