Pistons Expect To Sign 2011 2nd Round Pick Kyle Singler On July 11

After opting to play his first year of professional basketball overseas in Spain, former Detroit Pistons second round pick Kyle Singler is ready to join a lockout-free NBA, and the team expects to sign him on July 11 according to the Associated Press' Larry Lage.

Singler tallied 8.0 points per game over just 19.8 minutes per night with Real Madrid in Spain this past year, and continues to hold no regrets about his decision to spurn the league last summer. A complete all-around talent with an impressive 6'8" frame, Singler's 43.1% three-point number through 36 games also offers a nice glimpse of his perimeter shooting ability.

Assuming everything goes to plan and Dumars is able to sign him in the coming weeks, Singler would join a promising 2012 rookie class that includes Connecticut center Andre Drummond, Texas A&M forward Khris Middleton and Missouri guard Kim English.
