Artis was waived by the Clippers on Saturday, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Artis was waived one day after signing with the team. There's a chance he ends up with the organization's G-League affiliate, the Agua Caliente Clippers.
Artis spent the 2017-18 campaign on a two-way contract with the Magic, where he played in 15 games and averaged 5.1 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 18.6 minutes. He'll now be given a shot with the Clippers ahead of the upcoming season, though the fact that it's only partially guaranteed is an indicator that Artis will still have an uphill battle to make the final roster. Even if Artis does somehow earn a roster spot, he'd merely be emergency depth and isn't going to be a fantasy contributor.
The Kings waived Artis on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
After signing only a partially guaranteed deal with the Kings over the summer, Artis was never viewed as a likely candidate to crack the season-opening roster. The wing appeared in two of the Kings' three preseason contests, logging nine points (3-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 22 minutes. If Artis fails to get picked up by another team before the regular season begins, he could stick in the Sacramento organization with their G League affiliate, the Stockton Kings.
After going undrafted last June, Artis earned a two-way contract from Orlando, appearing in 15 games at the NBA level in 2017-18. In those contests, he averaged 5.1 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 18.6 minutes per game. However, after failing to earn a qualifying offer from Orlando this summer, Artis will now vie for a spot on the Sacramento roster in training camp. The lack of guaranteed money attached to his deal likely means that the Kings can cut Artis without much repercussions if he fails to impress in camp.
Artis scored 17 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-8 FT) while adding six rebounds, three assists and a steal in 38 minutes during Monday's 112-109 double-overtime loss to the Lakers in the summer league semi-final.
Getting the start at small forward, Artis posted another solid performance to close out his Vegas campaign. The second-year wing will look to carry his strong play into training camp, whether it's with the Cavs or another organization, but he's still a long shot to earn meaningful NBA minutes in 2018-19.
