Singlers on Pistons' summer roster

Orlando summer league games to begin Sunday

DETROIT — The Detroit Pistons announced on Wednesday that Kyle Singler, a second-year small forward, is on the Orlando summer league roster.

The former South Medford High standout may not play in games, however, but is in Orlando to practice.

Singler's younger brother, rookie Oregon small forward E.J. Singler, is also on the roster. The younger Singler was not drafted in last Thursday's NBA Draft after spending four standout seasons with the Ducks.

Also on the Pistons' summer-league roster is second-year center Andre Drummond and their 2013 rookie class of Georgia shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, North Texas forward Tony Mitchell and Louisville point guard Peyton Siva.

Ten teams will participate in the action, which begins Sunday. Each team will play five games over the next six days, with championship day coming July 12. All games are televised on NBA TV.

When the games begin at the Orlando Magic practice facility, it will mark the first glimpse of Drummond since he finished a stellar rookie campaign. He's not expected to play the full schedule, with the USA Basketball minicamp coming later this month.

Shooting guard Kim English, small forward Khris Middleton and center Slava Kravtsov will also be on the roster.

Former MSU point guard Korie Lucious, who finished his career at Iowa State, is also on the roster, as is Brandon Knight and Greg Monroe, who are expected to practice with the team all this week but will not play in games.
