Royce Young: With Kyle Singler re-signed (and Kanter likely to come), it’s likely the Thunder will look to move Perry Jones or Steve Novak (or both).
Kyle Singler has agreed to a five-year extension worth nearly $25 million with the Oklahoma City Thunder, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Singler, 27, rapidly grew into an important part of the Thunder’s bench upon arrival from Detroit in a three-team trade. He has averaged 8.1 points and 3.4 rebounds in three seasons in the NBA.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Restricted free agent Kyle Singler has agreed to a five-year, nearly $25M extension with Oklahoma City, league source tells Yahoo Sports.
Marc J. Spears: The Thunder expected to re-sign their free agent swingman Kyle Singler to a deal that could be three years long, a source told Yahoo Sports.
Eric Pincus: The Oklahoma City Thunder have given qualifying offers to Kyle Singler and Enes Kanter to make them restricted free agents @BBallInsiders
Is the Thunder doing the right thing by attempting to re-sign Singler this summer? Mayberry: Given how the team’s financial state effectively prevents it from going out and getting someone better, I’ll say yes. Singler has got to be a better player than what he showed with the Thunder last season. Perhaps a full season in OKC and a full complement of players will help show his true value. But I’d start thinking twice if the price tag starts going anywhere north of what’s been budgeted. He’s still a role player, one who easily can be replaced.
Q: What makes you confident the team can re-sign Enes Kanter this summer, and what did you see in Kyle Singler that makes you interested in bringing him back? Sam Presti: Both players stand to be restricted free agents in their early-to-mid 20’s, and this, in combination with the pending TV money hitting the system in the future made it possible for us to pursue both aggressively in trade while still maintaining confidence that we could continue to build a team around our core in the coming years. Enes is someone we are committed to seeing in a Thunder uniform moving forward. With regards to Singler, finding a player in free agency that can shoot close to 40% from the three point line over the course of a season, embrace various roles, and stand as one of your more fundamental players at 6-9 is unlikely when over the cap and tax. Therefore, we are hopeful we will be able to keep working with him in the future.
They love Singler. I think he got exposed as a starter on an injury-plagued team. But they want to bring him back. Novak, I’m not so sure. He obviously provides another shooting threat. But if it’s at the expense of a valuable roster spot maybe the front office decides to move him.
Vincent Ellis: Some tidbits: #Pistons reluctant to trade Singler. Impending RFA played a factor – although Jackson talent main factor. If Singler were a rookie or in second season … get the sense #Pistons might have just worried about it in off-season. #Pistons
Kyle Singler: Thank you to the @Detroit Pistons for a great 2.5 years. To every #Pistons fan, your support is unmatched. I appreciate it. – The Bucket Man
Adrian Wojnarowski: Detroit will send Kyle Singler to Oklahoma City, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
Van Gundy also said it is very unlikely that the Pistons trade anyone currently on a rookie contract, which includes Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Spencer Dinwiddie, Andre Drummond and Kyle Singler. “Not going to happen,” Van Gundy said. “Not going to happen unless you get another guy back on his rookie deal. Basically, our philosophy coming in is first-round draft picks and rookie deals, you’re giving those up to either get similar back, or if there’s a star. If there’s one of the real stars in the league, then obviously, everything changes. But other than that, no, those guys on rookie deals are too important, and we really like our young guys. So no, that’s not going to happen.”
Detroit Pistons forward Kyle Singler will be wearing a protective mask on his face against the Milwaukee Bucks tonight after suffering a nasal fracture Wednesday against the Orlando Magic. Singler was fitted for the mask Friday and the Pistons didn’t have a shoot around this morning so he’ll test it out for the first time in warm ups before taking the floor against the Bucks.
Singler figures to earn multiples of that number when his three-year contract expires and the restricted free agent-to-be becomes a major offseason business item in 2015. “In a contract year, you’re going to worry about it a little bit,” he said. “But it can’t consume you. It can’t be the only thing that you think about. It’s a part of the game, it’s a part of your life, so you have to worry about it a little bit. But I think things will work out for me.”

But for a team with offensive struggles that’s looking to make a playoff push later in the season — Detroit, perhaps? — a deal that involves someone like Kyle Singler for Thornton could make sense for both sides. The Kings would also have to take on another contract, like Charlie Villanueva or Jonas Jerebko, to make the deal work.
But when Andre Drummond’s injury forced him out of Friday’s game for rookies and second-year players in conjunction with NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston, leaving only second-year Brandon Knight from the Pistons, head coach Lawrence Frank said he felt sure that Singler would be named the rookie replacement. Orlando’s Andrew Nicholson was tapped instead and Frank said he considered it it a snub to Singler. “Maybe he’s one of those guys that unless you coach him, there’s not the appreciation,” Frank said. “But his numbers, you look at his numbers, he’s in the top nine of that rookie group. So I thought he was snubbed but what are you going to do?”
Even if he might miss the rest of the season, I hope Rasheed Wallace keeps hanging around the Knicks so we can get little moments like this, where he just quickly walks behind Kyle Singler and yells “North Carolina!” because he bleeds Carolina blue and can’t let a Duke player enjoy his time in the spotlight. Just the best.

Kyle Singler is really good at trick shots. He did it at Duke all around the campus. So now the Pistons took him out and had him take shots all around Detroit — getting buckets. My favorites are the field goal at Ford Field and… okay, that moving car shot may be the best trick shot I have ever seen. That is impressive.
