The Clippers spoke with free agent Chris Singleton last week, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.
Singleton has been out of the league since 2013-14, so this was likely just a conversation about summer league, let alone a training camp invite. Regardless, the former first-round pick has expressed a desire to find a way back to the league, so maybe the suddenly new-look Clippers will give him a make-good deal. Fri, Jun 30, 2017 06:11:00 PM

Former Wizards F Chris Singleton reportedly had two sit-down meetings with NBA teams this week, and he's prepared to opt out of his deal with the Greek team Panathinaikos.

The No. 18 pick in the 2011 draft hasn't played in the NBA since 2013-14, after which he signed with teams in Russia and Greece. Singleton is still just 27 years old and he did fare well overseas, finishing the 2016-17 season with averages of 12.0 points on 54.1 percent shooting (43.6 percent from deep), 5.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks. He's still a longshot to make a regular-season NBA roster.

Chris Singleton has signed a contract with Anhui Wenyi in China.

He spent last season with Lokomotiv Kuban of Russia and hasn't played in the NBA since the 2013-14 season. The 27-year-old forward may not get another shot at the NBA.

Chris Singleton officially signed with Lokomotiv Kuban of Russia.

Singleton is headed to Russia on a one-year deal, so he could find his way back to the NBA next season. That said, he wasn't worth owning in fantasy leagues last season, so fantasy owners can feel free to move on.

Chris Singleton has reportedly signed with Lokomotiv Kuban of Russia.

He reportedly received some interest from the Clippers this offseason, but ultimately he elected for what was likely a bigger payday overseas.

The Clippers have reportedly reached out to unrestricted free agent Chris Singleton.

The Clippers have one more roster spot to fill, and they are reportedly looking to add another big. They've also been in contact with Glen Davis and Ryan Hollins, although at this point no deal is imminent for any of the aforementioned players. Davis is likely the Clippers' preferred target, but none of these guys will have any fantasy value serving as an emergency depth kind of guy in Los Angeles.

Chris Singleton has committed to playing with the Orlando Magic for Summer League.

Singleton hasn't played in the NBA since the 2013-14 season, but is unlikely to provide much fantasy value even if he's able to hook on with the Magic or another team. Singleton averaged 3.0 points, and 2.2 rebounds in 25 games with the Wizards in 2013-14, so he can largely be ignored in fantasy cirlces even if he lands on an NBA roster.

Chris Singleton is expected to sign in the D-League.

Singleton, a former 2011 first-round pick of the Wizards, has been out of basketball this season, and he faces an uphill battle to return to the NBA.

Unrestricted free agent Chris Singleton has reportedly committed to sign with the Pacers.

The Pacers lost Paul George and Lance Stephenson this offseason, so there are a lot of minutes to be dispersed, and the team needs healthy bodies on the wings. That being said, Singleton has struggled with injuries throughout his brief three-year career (he was only able to make it through 25 games last season) and with career averages of 4.1 points, and 3.2 rebounds on 37.6 percent shooting, he doesn't figure to be a viable fantasy option in standard leagues.

Chris Singelton will work out for NBA personnel in Las Vegas on Monday.

He's received some interest from the Heat and Pacers, but there's no word on which teams will be at today's workout. Singleton fell out of the rotation with the Wizards and his offensive game never really came around since being drafted in 2011. He will likely have to fight for a roster spot at training camp.

Chris Singleton has received some interest from the Heat and Pacers.

These two teams lost some notable free agents on the wings and are just looking for depth here. Singleton hasn't really improved in the past three seasons and would just be an end-of-the-bench guy at best.
Mon, Jul 21, 2014 11:51:00 AM

Chris Singleton scored 13 points in 25 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday with nine boards, two assists, one steal and three fouls.

He's played in just 15 games this season with an average of 10.9 minutes per night. The Wizards didn't pick up Singleton's option heading into the season, so they're not really going to be too interested in developing the 2014 free agent. Chances are his minutes will go back down once Kevin Seraphin (knee) is healthy.

Chris Singleton started the second half of Friday's game for injured Martell Webster (ankle), scoring seven points on 1-of-10 shooting with eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and a three in 33 minutes.

Singleton has flashed the ability to post versatile lines in the past, but more often than not there will be a glaring issue or two similar to his 1-of-10 mark from the field. It's hard to get behind him in standard leagues even as a short-term pickup, but Webster's injury looks like it's at least somewhat serious and there might be a window for some deep league value here.

Chris Singleton (foot) played one minute in his season debut during Tuesday's 116-111 victory over the Lakers.

The Wizards didn't pick up their team option on him last month and Singleton hasn't lived up to being a first-round pick. He was viewed as a great defender, but there has been no growth on the offensive side. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Tue, Nov 26, 2013 10:10:00 PM

Chris Singleton (foot) may be available for "spot" minutes vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

Martell Webster will be occupied starting at SG in place of Bradley Beal (leg), which leaves more minutes available at SF, and Singleton's return is bad news for the limited roles of Jan Vesely and Trevor Booker.
