Arnett Moultrie will play during Summer League to try and get back to the NBA.

Moultrie took his talents overseas this past season, suiting up for Jiangsu Nangang of the CBA, and while he's hoping to make an NBA comeback that is far from a certainty. The 27th overall selection from the 2012 NBA draft owns meager career averages of 3.6 points and 3.1 rebounds per game.

Arnett Moultrie has signed with the Jiangsu Nangang Basketball Club in China, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports.

Moultrie will try to revive his NBA career in China after being waived by the Knicks before the start of the 2014-15 season. He's still just 24 years old, but it would be a surprise to see him resurface in the NBA any time soon.

The Knicks have waived Arnett Moultrie.

The Knicks had no desire to add Moultrie to their roster, and the trade of Travis Outlaw looks to have been a salary-shedding move, and nothing more. Moultrie boasts career-averages of 3.6 points and 3.1 rebounds, so even if he's able to land on another NBA team, he's completely off the fantasy radar.

Arnett Moultrie has reportedly been traded to the Knicks in exchange for Travis Outlaw and a future second-round pick.

Moultrie was the only guy on the 76ers team that could have challenged Henry Sims for minutes, but with him headed out of town, Sims is going to get all the minutes he can handle. Moultrie is going to have a negligible role with the Knicks, and fantasy owners shouldn't give him a second thought. Outlaw is likely to be waived by the 76ers.

Arnett Moultrie made 5-of-7 from the field for 10 points with three rebounds, one steal and one block in 24 minutes against the Nets on Monday.

He had a couple crafty passes which led to free throws and looks pretty comfortable out there. Moultrie was such a no-show last season that it's going to take a lot more out of him to be on the standard-league radar. He's going to be in the rotation on Philly, so that has to count for something, right?

Arnett Moultire provided some nice defense against the Magic on Saturday with two blocks and two steals to go with six points, eight boards and two assists in 19 minutes.

He was roasted for his conditioning last season, but coach Brett Brown has praised Moultrie so far this year. The big man has a solid mid-range game and seems like a lock to be in the rotation. Just keep an eye on him for now.

Arnett Moultrie played 34 minutes off the bench against the Celtics on Thursday, making 8-of-19 from the field for 16 points with nine boards, three assists and two steals.

The big minutes are interesting and Moultrie looks like a new player this season. He had major conditioning issues last season and was in the doghouse, but coach Brett Brown has said he's been impressed at camp so far. Moultrie is a decent jump shooter and projects to be in the rotation. We'll still need to see a lot more before we suggest him in anything other than a very deep league.

Arnett Moultrie looked great in his preseason debut against the Celtics on Monday, scoring 12 points with six boards and two turnovers in 22 minutes.

He shot 6-of-10 from the field and it was a mid-range fest. Moultrie was more impressive on defense and he was getting up and down the floor pretty well. Henry Sims is still the favorite to start and is a better pick right now, but a couple strong games from Moultrie could change that.

Coach Brett Brown has been impressed with Arnett Moultrie at camp.

"I think it’s a statement any time somebody comes back into a camp because as coaches you’re not with them all the time," Brown said. "You’re always curious how somebody looks. He has put in time, which to me is a real strong indication of his attitude coming into this year. It’s a positive reflection." Moultrie squandered his chance last season because he showed up out of shape. This year, he'll have to have a great camp to earn his playing time. Henry Sims is still the big man to grab after Nerlens Noel, but keep an eye on Moultrie.

Arnett Moultrie said on Monday that he is down to 10 percent body fat and weighs 242 pounds.

The team wanted him to be at 245 and it would appear he's met their goal. Henry Sims has the first crack at the starting spot, but a really strong camp from Moultrie could turn things around. Moultrie has been in coach Brett Brown's doghouse more than just about any other player, but it wouldn't be a shock to see him become a contributor. Just keep an eye on him for now. For what it's worth, Sims is a nice late-round target.

Coach Brett Brown said on Thursday that Arnett Moultrie "had a hell of a summer."

"His body fat percentage is down, his weight is down," Brown said. "Physically, he looks good." Moultrie was in Brown's doghouse for almost the entire season and the big man squandered his chance in the starting lineup. His conditioning was non-existent, so he won't get the benefit of the doubt in training camp. Henry Sims is a much better flier late in drafts at this point.

76ers big man Arnett Moultrie understands how much is at stake for him in 2014-15, his third NBA season.

Moultrie served a five-game suspension last season for repeatedly failing the NBA's anti-drug policies, and he's been out of shape for most of his brief NBA career. Sixers GM Sam Hinkie said Moultrie has been working out "really hard" in Philadelphia, and the team's shallow frontcourt puts him in position to earn minutes if he stays focused and fit.

Arnett Moultrie has rejoined the 76ers after serving a five-game suspension for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy, and he called the suspension his "wake-up call."

Moultrie was recovering from ankle surgery to start the season, but he gained weight during his rehab and wasn't in playing condition upon his return. Sixers coach Brett Brown resisted playing him and Moultrie even spent some time in the D-League prior to his suspension, so his season couldn't have gone much worse. Brown summed up the situation, saying, "If Arnett takes things extremely serious, if Arnett understands what it really, really takes to cultivate his obvious skills, then, yes, he can [make it in the league]."

76ers forward Arnett Moultrie has been suspended five games for violations of the NBA's drug policy.

The five-game suspension is consistent with the league's marijuana program, and it means that Moultrie has tested positive three different times. Former Sixers coach Doug Collins was never a fan of Moultrie's work ethic and he's only appeared in 12 games under coach Brett Brown this season. There's no reason to think he'll break out next season, though the rebuilding Sixers do owe him a guaranteed $1.1 million.
