James Singleton has signed with Bnei Herzliya of Israel.
While Singleton has logged 243 NBA games, this would seem to mark the end of his NBA career as he heads overseas. The 34-year-old averaged 3.9 points and 3.7 rebounds during his time in the NBA and can continue to be ignored by fantasy owners. Thu, Aug 13, 2015 09:53:00 AM

James Singleton's reported deal with the Knicks could be in jeopardy with the team's reported signing of Solomon Jones.

The Knicks plan to release Kurt Thomas to clear space for Jones, but the original plan was to release Thomas for Singleton, meaning Singleton's deal could be about to fall apart.

The Knicks are close to a deal with free-agent forward James Singleton, Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reports.

Singleton spent the season playing in China. His pending signing means the Knicks will have to cut someone, and it's expected to be Kurt Thomas. Neither player has any fantasy value so this news shouldn't affect your league in the slightest.

James Singleton will sign with Xinjiang in China.

Singleton had previously hinted that he could be headed to the Chinese league, saying "China will always be an option." In search of a more lucrative payday and a larger role than he would have earned stateside, Singleton will take his game back to the international ranks.

Unrestricted FA James Singleton did not rule out playing in China next season.

"As I’ve always said, the NBA is a great place to be," Singleton wrote in a text message to the Washington Post, "but at the end of the day, I have to do what’s best for me and my family. China will always be an option. Anywhere in the world is pretty much." He averaged 8.2 points and 6.8 rebounds for Washington last season.

Unrestricted FA James Singleton has decided to "move on" from the Wizards.

Singleton was signed in April for the remainder of the 2011-12 season and actually fared well, averaging 8.2 points and 6.8 rebounds on 54.7 percent shooting in just 22 minutes per game. He may have to wait a little longer to find the right fit, but Singleton does enough off the bench that he should land on an NBA roster as depth along the front line.

James Singleton improved his jump shot while playing in China last year, and the Wizards have already expressed an interest in re-signing him.

The 30-year-old veteran averaged 8.2 points and 6.8 rebounds in the final 10 games of the season, when the Wizards shockingly went 8-2. Depending upon where he signs next year, he's worth watching as a source of low-end fantasy value.

James Singleton scored six points on 2-of-4 shooting with nine rebounds, three assists, and a steal in 20 minutes on Monday.

Singleton has been providing low-to-mid round value despite his low minute-totals, and is worth a look for the Wizards' remaining two games.
Mon, Apr 23, 2012 09:44:00 PM

James Singleton scored six points on 3-of-5 shooting with five rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in 16 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Despite playing just 23 minutes per game over the past two weeks, Singleton has averaged 9.3 points, 7.3 boards, 0.9 steals, 1.0 blocks, and 0.6 turnovers while shooting 56.5 percent from the field and 92.3 percent from the foul line. That's good for solid mid-round value in 8- and 9-cat leagues, so give him a look if you need a forward.

Wizards signed PF James Singleton for the remained of the season.

In six appearances with the Wiz this season, Singleton has averaged 9.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game. He's acting as the first big off the bench right now with Trevor Booker (foot) and Nene (foot) still sidelined.

James Singleton overcame a quiet first half to finish Saturday's game with 13 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer on 6-of-10 shooting.

He played 25 minutes and overcame the poor first half to play well the rest of the way. The Wizards only play three games next week, but Singleton is getting enough burn to be given a look. Cartier Martin cooled off tonight, hitting just 2-of-9 shots for six points in 24 minutes.

James Singleton scored four points on 1-of-6 shooting with nine rebounds and a block in 20 minutes off the bench in Friday's blowout loss.

Singleton has been getting it done recently, averaging 9.2 points, 8.0 boards, 0.6 steals, and 0.6 blocks in his last five games. Even with the Wizards shooting 28 percent as a team and scoring only 65 points, it's somewhat impressive that Singleton could still be productive in his bench role.

James Singleton scored 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting to go along with eight rebounds as the Wizards upset the Magic on Tuesday.

Singleton, in just his fourth game with the team, has been tremendous off the bench, averaging 14 points per game and nine rebounds over his last three. He is certainly worth a pick up, although he could get bumped down on the depth chart once some healthy bodies return for the Wizards.

James Singleton scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting (6-of-7 from the foul line) with 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks in 37 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Bobcats.

Singleton posted 12 points, nine rebounds, and three assists in 26 minutes on Friday, and in this quirky season of 10-day guys exploding he'll be worth a desperation look -- but also be as risky as they come. Should the Wizards stay banged up and starter Chris Singleton stay in the 20 mpg range, there's a chance that Singleton or Cartier Martin (19 points) emerges with some value, but there's a ton that could go wrong. The first thing that comes to mind is playing a real NBA team unlike the Bobcats.
