OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma City Thunder waived their fourth-longest tenured player in Kyle Singler Thursday in a move that will save them more than $20 million in luxury taxes for the 2018-19 season.
Singler was a star at South Medford High School before heading to Duke as one of the most highly touted prep athletes to ever come out of Southern Oregon. The 30-year-old signed a five-year extension with the Thunder in 2015, which included a team option for the 2019-20 season.
Singler's Thunder career saw him average 3.2 points and 1.8 rebounds per game while shooting nearly 31 percent from three-point range. The move makes Singler a free agent, who can sign with any interested NBA team.
