Are you watching the Pistons games this year?
KS: I know they are not doing too well. But they are a team that’s building, they are young and they are not going to have a great year. But as long as they compete and play hard, that’s all you can ask for.
What’s going to happen with you next season?
KS: I have not decided. I haven’t made up my mind yet. I can stay for another year or I can go back. I really don’t know. I’m not leaning one way or the other. I’m concentrated and focused on playing here right now and winning basketball games.
Singler also notes in the interview that he was disappointed he wasn’t drafted in the first round. It’s pretty clear why that’s probably the case: he missed out on a fully guaranteed contract and more money by three picks. The money he was able to make with Real Madrid trumps what he would’ve made with the Pistons as a second round pick.
Honestly, I don’t really care if Singler never plays for the Pistons. But he at some point will have to show that he actually wants to play in the NBA if the Pistons ever want to trade his draft rights somewhere. He genuinely seems to love playing in Spain, and it’s hard to fault that. He’s playing at a very high level of pro basketball.
