Moultrie was traded to the Knicks on Monday and promptly waived, Steve Popper of The Record reports.

Phily sent Moultrie to New York in exchange for Travis Outlaw, a 2019 second-round pick, and the right to swap 2018 second-round picks with the Knicks. New York, which saves money by not having to release Outlaw and his $3 million contract, waived Moultrie immediately, clearing a spot on the roster for Travis Wear. Outlaw is also expected to be waived by Philadelphia, so both players will be seeking new homes as the season begins.

Moultrie will be given an opportunity to make the final roster, but is more likely to be bought out of his contract, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The report comes following an interview with 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie.

Moultrie missed a lot of time in 2013-14 while recovering from a left ankle injury, but even when he was healthy he played very rarely. Though the big men at the top of the 76ers' depth chart for 2014-15 may be less impressive than 2013-14's pairing, it's not the talent of the starters that impacts Moultrie. Moultrie is more affected by the addition a few reserve-caliber bigs. It's good that he will be given a chance to make the team, but it is a discouraging sign that his general manager thinks Moultrie is more likely to get bought out. Even if Moultrie does make the final roster, he is unlikely make an impact on any standard size leagues.

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.

Arnett Moultrie is listed as an inactive for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

Well, someone is back in coach Brett Brown's doghouse. Moultrie is probably more suited for playing halfcourt ball and he should not be owned in any leagues right now.

Arnett Moultrie will move to the bench on Wednesday.

He looked horrible in the starting lineup on Monday night and it's become obvious he cannot play big minutes. Moultrie's per-minute averages aren't great, so this news of him moving to the bench certainly puts him on the chopping block in several formats.

Arnett Moultrie started at center in Monday's blowout loss to the lowly Bucks, scoring six points on 2-of-6 shooting with eight rebounds, one steal and one block in 28 minutes.

Moultrie is a work in progress for conditioning and experience reasons but it's clear the Sixers want him at the front of the line for minutes, at least for right now. Brett Brown said after the game that nobody is safe and that changes could be regular, but for now he's worth a risky speculative add in standard leagues for the system he plays in.

Arnett Moultrie is likely to earn another start at center vs. the Bucks on Monday.

76ers big men Byron Mullens and Henry Sims have practiced with their new team twice since the trade deadline, and coach Brett Brown "didn't sound inclined to consider either as starting center material [for Monday's game]." Brown challenged Moultrie to improve his conditioning and become a relentless pick-and-roll option, rather than settling for jumpers, and standard-league fantasy owners should probably avoid him unless his minutes rise closer to 30 per game.

Arnett Moultrie scored six points with five boards, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes against the Mavericks on Friday.

His conditioning issues were obvious tonight and he looked gassed at the end of the first quarter. Moultrie couldn't get himself involved on the offensive end because he looked so tired and only attempted five shots. If tonight is any indication, he's going to have a tough time getting more than 24 minutes per game once Byron Mullens and Henry Sims arrive. He's still worth a look in 14-team leagues.
