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.
Jul 21 - 11:51 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.

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.

Chris Singleton (foot) participated in Monday's practice, but his status for Tuesday's game is uncertain.

He has yet to play this season and his status will likely hinge upon how his foot responds to today's activity. Once healthy, he'll battle for minutes at both forward spots off the bench.

The Wizards will not pick up the team option on Chris Singleton.

The Wizards thought they knew what they were doing when they took Singleton at 18 in the draft. He was considered as a defensive guy at Florida State, but his offense has failed to improve whatsoever. Singleton played just 16 minutes per game last season, will not be in the rotation to start the year, and will be a free agent after this season.

Chris Singleton will miss 6-8 weeks after surgery to repair a fractured metatarsal in his left foot.

Singleton suffered a Jones fracture, an injury which typically requires "screw fixation ... and the use of a bone stimulator," according to podiatrist Michael K. Lowe. Singleton's absence until late Oct. or mid-Nov. means more playing time for Trevor Ariza and Otto Porter at SF. Even at full health, his limited minutes and shaky shooting make him a dubious fantasy option.

Chris Singleton said he needs to "break the habit" of leaning back when he shoots, which results in minimal arc.

Singleton has good size and strength at 6'9", 230 lbs, but his broken jumper (37.6 percent FGs) has prevented him from truly carving out a niche with the Wizards. Nothing he did during Summer League suggests he'll make a big leap in 2013-14.

The Wizards are hopeful that Jan Vesely and Chris Singleton will show offensive improvement during Summer League in July.

Nene's flagging health may limit his playing time next season, shifting more of a burden onto guys like Singleton, Vesely, Kevin Seraphin and Trevor Booker. The Wizards optimism aside, fantasy owners shouldn't expect much more scoring from Vesely (2.5 ppg last year) or Singleton (4.1 ppg), both of whom should go undrafted in standard leagues.

Chris Singleton started on Wednesday, but hit just 3-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for eight points and five rebounds on Wednesday.

The minutes were there with both Martell Webster (abdomen) and Trevor Ariza (flu) out, but Singleton is only worth a close look if those two continue to miss games. Cartier Martin had 12 points and two threes off the bench, and is in the same boat.

Chris Singleton played 43 minutes against the Grizzlies on Monday, scoring 10 points with seven boards, three assists and two blocks.

He got the start with the Wizards becoming very shorthanded with Trevor Ariza (flu) and Martell Webster both out. Ariza shouldn't be out too much longer, so there's really no reason to pick up Singleton in most formats.
Mon, Mar 25, 2013 10:34:00 PM

Chris Singleton played 21 minutes in his return to the Wizards rotation, grabbing six rebounds with two assists and one steal.

The bad news is that he scored only four points on 1-of-10 shooting, a rather predictable stat for a career 37.8 percent shooter. He plays with great energy and is a valuable rebounder and defender, but his brutal offense prohibits fantasy value.
