Small forward Kyle Singler

How obtained: Pistons’ second-round pick (33rd overall selection) in the 2011 NBA draft.

Looking back: After playing one season overseas because of the NBA lockout he exceeded expectations as a rookie last season. He started 74 games splitting time between shooting guard and small forward. He averaged 8.8 points and shot 35% from three-point range.

His salary: $1.045 million (Year 2 of three-year $3.135-million deal).

Looking ahead: It’s a safe bet his minutes will decrease with the addition of Josh Smith who will start at small forward. The addition of Luigi Datome’s shooting ability probably makes him a rotation lock. There’s tough competition but there is usually room for smart players in rotations.

Did you know? Singler’s parents were athletes at Oregon. His father Ed was a quarterback; his mother Kris played basketball.
