Pistons Sign 2011 Draft Pick Kyle Singler To Multi-Year Deal

The Detroit Pistons have signed 2011 second-round draft pick Kyle Singler to a multi-year contract, according to the team's official Twitter account. Singler spent the 2011-12 season playing in Spain for his first year as a professional, playing with Lucentum Alicante and Real Madrid. His stats were pretty good, averaging 14.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 31.1 minutes with the former and 7.9 points, 2.7 rebounds and 20.3 minutes in 46 games with the latter.

Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars released a statement on the signing, as per the Detroit Free Press:

"We are pleased to have Kyle Singler join our organization knowing he brings great character and skill to our team," Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said in a released statement. "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."

Singler was taken with the 33rd pick in the second round in 2011. He's 6-foot-8 and should be able to find some playing time with the team initially off the bench. Detroit is eager to get young talent on the court sooner rather than later, and Singler impressed in the team's summer league opener. Singler had 14 points (going 6-for-8) in the opener against the Jazz.
