Chris Singleton: I know people are worried about not having a season, but I think we’ll have one. If I had to make a guess, I’d say we get into camp by December, maybe get the season going by January. I have heard some talk about the negotiations, about whether some of the stars should be speaking out more, but to me, the stars have stepped up, because they are all still here. They haven’t gone overseas. Washington Times

Chris Singleton: I know a lot of guys are talking about going overseas to play, but I’m not thinking about it. Right now, getting my degree is more important to me. But for a lot of guys, if they can find a good situation with an out clause, it could be a good option. People talk about what happens if you go over there and get hurt, but every time you step on a court, you could get hurt, so I don’t think guys are really worrying about that. Washington Times

Chris Singleton: I don’t think the Wizards have the respect of a lot of people in D.C., so we have to take our game to another level. I’m positive we can turn things around, but mentally, we have to be there. I know the gossip about what some of these guys have been doing off the court, and frankly, some people need to grow up a little and eliminate some of that. But over time, we will develop our chemistry, and we’ll make the city of D.C. proud of us. Washington Times

Wizards rookie Chris Singleton, though, is taking a bit of a different tack. He is going back to school at Florida State. He is working out. But he also is getting some entrepreneurial spirit going. He told Sporting News that he and some friends from FSU have started a new clothing line, called Doughpe Clothing (that’s pronounced, “Dope.”) It can be found at doughpeclothing.com. “You know, it is a lot of fun because we are just getting it started and getting it off the ground,” Singleton said. “It’s an urban T-shirt line, something I am just trying to make people aware of, do the marketing and see how much interest we can get going for it. We just launched it (in late July). But it is already off to a pretty good start. We have the time to do something like this right now, so why not try it?” Sporting News

Stephen Curry, Jarrett Jack, Marvin Williams, Jodie Meeks, Ekpe Udoh, Chris Singleton, Jon Leuer and many others are trading their playbooks for textbooks. Other players, such as Derrick Williams and Brandon Knight, haven't started the process but are considering re-enrolling at their respective schools. "I have to get that degree," said Udoh, who is currently chipping away at the final 14 hours of his undergraduate degree at Baylor University. HoopsWorld

Frank Isola: New Knick Iman Shumpert comes across as a confident, intelligent guy. Smart enough to know he'll be judged against Chris Singleton. Twitter

The Knicks are growing less optimistic point guard Jimmer Fredette, shooting guard Klay Thompson or forward Chris Singleton will slip to 17, and prospects of trading up are slim. The Knicks are more likely to try to snare a veteran and trade back in the draft, a source said. New York Post

One thing about Marcus Morris became evident at the Utah Jazz's pre-draft workout Sunday. The Kansas junior is a straight shooter. And that has nothing to do with his actual shooting capabilities. Whether admitting he believes fellow workout participant Chris Singleton is "not very talented" on the offensive end or speaking about his own talents, the highly regarded 21-year- old forward says it like he sees it. "Honestly, I think I'm the most complete player in the draft," the 6-9 Morris said. "I think I'm one of those guys that can just do a lot. (There are) lots of parts of my game I can hang my hat on."

Every year, the NBA tips its hand as to who it believes are the top 14 or 15 prospects in the draft with its annual "green room" invitations. These players are invited by the league to sit in a special room with their families and agent on draft night. When their names are called, they leave the room and go up on stage to shake commissioner David Stern's hand. This year's invitees to the June 23 draft: Kyrie Irving (Duke); Derrick Williams (Arizona); Enes Kanter (Turkey); Brandon Knight (Kentucky); Kemba Walker (UConn); Jonas Valanciunas (Lithuania); Jan Vesely (Czech Republic); Kawhi Leonard (San Diego St.); Chris Singleton (Florida St.); Klay Thompson (Washington St.); Tristan Thompson (Texas); Jimmer Fredette (BYU); Marcus Morris (Kansas); and Alec Burks (Colorado). A 15th name has been added -- Markieff Morris of Kansas. Markieff is Marcus Morris' twin and also widely considered to be a top 20 draft pick. ESPN.com

I think Brooks is definitely among the players who have impressed the Bobcats. I think Florida State's Chris Singleton and Southern California big man Nikola Vucevic have also caught their fancy. Charlotte Observer

Singleton defended so well against one of the draft class' best scorers, Jordan Hamilton of Texas, in the workout that he was ready to seek out established competition. Namely, Thornton - a top-notch scorer who is also from Florida State. "I'm from Atlanta, so I'm not scared of anybody. I'm going to bring that toughness to whatever team drafts me," he said. "I feel like I'm the modern-day Scottie Pippen. I feel like I can do it all: pass, shoot, dribble and play defense." San Francisco Chronicle
