   2011 NBA Draft Diary

Pick 33: Kyle Singler, largely assumed to be a first rounder, slumped to the second, but not for long. Detroit picks him at #33, a move which probably closes the door on Dajuan Summers's really rather unproductive Pistons career.

The first play in Singler's highlight montage is a hustle play, in which Singler fails to save the ball from going out of bounds and jumps into the lap of a fat guy that looks a bit like John Daly. Heart. Hustle. Desire. Love. Passion. Duke. White. Etc. The same highlight film then evolves into a series of shots of Singler hitting trick shots, involving shooting while jumping off a diving board and from the top of an apartment complex, linked by a short segway clip of Kyle driving a truck filled with bricks. This actually happened and you can draw your own conclusions.

Jay Bilas follows this up by calling Singler a "complete player" who is not a knockdown shooter. This is the exact opposite of how his NBA career will be. Jeff Van Gundy then doubts the veracity of the Singler video, to Jay's mock outrage. Jon Barry stays quiet.

   Sham's unnecessarily great big draft board: Small Forwards

Kyle Singler - As a four year white guy from Duke, it has proven to be inevitable that Singler has been compared to every good white shooting forward ever, from Danny Ferry to Mike Miller. Deadspin has compiled a rather amusing list of such comparisons from various places around the world. Most of them are attempts to be either very favourable, or very harsh, depending on perspective. But nowhere in that list did the name appear which, if we're honest, may be the most apt of all.

Pat Garrity.

(Not really. But the jumpshooting is the only obvious skill that will translate. Singler is tough enough, but it remains to be seen how the improved NBA spacing will affect the rest of his game.)

Kyle Singler
SF, 6’8, 228lbs, 29 years old, 5 years of experience

A “little things” player in the sense that he does not do any big things. A net negative the previous couple of years, Singler was pushed a far way down the bench this season, and did not perform well from there. The majority of his offensive game is still the three-point shot, on which he shot all of 18.9% this season, and, in being a liability in isolation defence as well, it is hard to know what it is that he is supposed to do any more. Needs a fresh start, says Mark, generously.

Player Plan: Three years and a shade under $15 million remaining, the first two years of which are guaranteed. It’s a problem contract that bulks up an already big payroll, and it is probably worth giving up a draft asset to get rid of it. Who knew a five year contract to Kyle Singler would prove a burden?
