Lucentum Alicante Rumors
Pistons vice president of basketball operations Scott Perry was caught speaking with Kyle Singler for some minutes at the end of the game between Lucentum Alicante and Gran Canaria, something that is forbidden during the lockout.
But the NBA shut down league operations on July 1 when the old collective bargaining agreement expired, and Singler’s hope of making the team was put on hold. Rather than wait and wait and wait for the lockout to end, Singler, wanting to remain sharp and fit, launched his professional career in Spain’s top flight with Lucentum Alicante. He’s glad he made the decision to play in Europe. “Definitely,” he said to FIBA.com. “I know a lot of guys back in the States want to play basketball. “It’s unfortunate that the lockout is happening. “You have your pros and cons to everything. “I’m far away from my family and they’re not able to see my play, but, this is what I want to do. “I’m having a good time, and it’s good basketball.”
