News: Singler agreed to a five-year, $25 million extension with the Thunder on Wednesday, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Singler, 27, was a major part of Oklahoma City's bench unit after coming over from Detroit in a three-team deal at the trade deadline in February. Holding career averages of 8.1 points and 3.4 rebounds, Singler figures to hold down a similar role off the bench next season, though he may compete for a starting spot at shooting guard.

News: Singler received a qualifying offer from the Thunder to make him a restricted free agent, Basketball Insiders reports.
Impact: It's unlikely Singler will command enough interest in free agency to prompt an offer sheet large enough to make the Thunder pass on matching it, so it's more likely that they sign Singler to an extension once the rest of their free agency goals are checked off.

News: Singler was traded to the Thunder in February and averaged 3.7 points and 2.1 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game across 26 appearances (18 starts) for Oklahoma City this season.
Impact: Singler joined the Thunder at the trade deadline, but didn't play as much as he previously did with the Pistons, causing his already underwhelming fantasy value to dip further. Now a free agent, Singler will look to join a team in search of steady wing play and outside shooting ahead of next season.
