Madrid: Former Duke forward Kyle Singler says he felt no rush to start his NBA career and decided to sign with Real Madrid because of the quality of basketball in Spain.
While other NBA players are returning to the United States with the lockout finally over, Singler has opted to stay in Europe to continue his development.
Singler was taken by the Detroit Pistons with the No. 33 pick in the draft. He had been playing with Spanish team Lucentum Alicante during the lockout.
