With just a little over two weeks to go until opening night in Oklahoma City, let’s take a look at everybody’s favorite Thunder player to hate: Kyle Singler.
Kyle Singler wears jersey #15, and he came to Oklahoma City by way of a trade with the Detroit Pistons on February 19, 2015. Singler re-signed with the Thunder on July 9, 2015, and he is in the third year of his five-year contract.
Many Thunder fans consider the Singler contract to be one of Sam Presti’s worst moves, which isn’t that bad, considering Presti’s recent amazing offseason. Since arriving in Oklahoma City, Singler really hasn’t done much, and his production has only decreased over the last two seasons. Last season, Singler saw career-lows in every major statistical category: in 32 games, he averaged only 2.8 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 0.3 assists in 12 minutes per game.
While Singler is still under contract for three more seasons, his future is unknown. A lot of fans would like to see him traded, but many critics consider him untradeable because of his lack of production over the last few seasons. Some believe the Thunder could “stretch” his contract (details by the Oklahoman’s Erik Horne here). Whatever happens with Singler, as long as he is a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, fans should do everything they can to muster up even a little support for the guy.
