Kyle Singler receives three-year guaranteed contract

Mark Deeks of ShamSports:

Kyle Singler got three years and $3,135,000, all guaranteed with no options.

Above all, it’s great that the Pistons signed Kyle Singler to a three-year contract. That will give them Bird rights for Singler when his contract expires, making it much easier to re-sign him.

Maybe the Pistons didn’t need to offer so much money above the minimum they could have offered ($2,120,092), and maybe they didn’t need to guarantee all three years. But those are small concessions for what could be a big advantage – Bird rights – if Singler excels.

For Singler, this contract is a clear win. He gained valuable experience last season, and he gained to leverage to earn more money than he could’ve gotten had he signed last summer.
