Evaluation: Artis is a guy with great quickness and speed and does a good job of penetrating and consistently getting into the lane. He has a terrific jumper, has good athleticism and is able to rebound very well considering his position and size. Artis also has an effective mid-range game where he’s able to pull up to hit the 15-foot jumper if he’s not able to get all the way to the bucket. His ball-handling skills are good as well and he has quick hands on defense. However, a couple of things he can improve on are his strength and perimeter shooting.
