Singler Signs Deal with Detroit

Wednesday was the first day that NBA teams could sign free agents, and the Detroit Pistons wasted no time in inking Medford’s Kyle Singler to a deal. The Associated Press reports that it’s a three-year contract between the Pistons and Singler.

“We are pleased to have Kyle Singler joining our organization knowing he brings great skill and character to the team. We watched him grow as a player throughout his season in Spain last year, and we feel he’s going to be a great addition to our roster going forward,” said Pistons’ President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars in a release.
Singler was the Pistons’ second round draft pick in 2011, but he played in Spain for a year during a lockout-shortened season.

“I’m very happy to be signing with the Detroit Pistons organization. Looking back, all the hard work and hours in the gym, it’s all worth it,” said Singler via Twitter.

Singler has two more games remaining with the Pistons in this week’s Summer League in Orlando.
