Default Pistons foward Kyle Singler staying in Spain this season

He won't be returning to the NBA this season and will stay overseas.

Skim-read this: http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=8641

Have you seen Singler enough to have an opinion on his game?

Good for him because his game does not translate to the NBA.

He's a decent player. He's an above average outside shooter, had the ability to drive sometimes(in college),OK defender(in college) but I just don't think he would be anything in the NBA. Maybe a poor mans Chase Budinger. He will have a better career playing overseas.

I'm a Duke/Rockets fan.

Singler is too slow to play NBA defense. His shooting is decent, but not good enough to be the first reserve shooter off the bench.

He is not athletic like Budinger. Budinger doesn't play nearly as hard as Singler, but he can jump really high and shoot the jumper. Singler has much better passing and court vision than Budinger though.

So technically he is indeed a homeless man's Budinger with better court vision.
Singler gives 100% every game. His best case scenario is a 8th man energy guy.

I think most players would prefer to live in Spain over Detroit.

Singler sucks balls anyway. He's a guy that said he wanted to get drafted by a contender and was expecting to contribute. Yeah, right dude. You'd be lucky to be a 12 th man on the worst NBA team.

Well he decided to be a foreign pimp on one of the biggest clubs in the world instead.

I figured that was a wasted pick when Detroit got him. There were a few other people still available in the 2nd round I think Detroit could have went after that could have made the roster and possibly helped the team.

Good call by him. He can't play over here right now but, with some physical growth and development of his game, may be able to play a modified 2/3. Think Mike Miller or a much more skilled Korver.

There's always room for guys who can shoot and see the court, but it's tough for a youngster to get enough time with a good NBA team to hone those skills. With a bad team he gets thrown to the wolves and run out of the league.

Revisit his decsiion in 3 years.
