Kyle Singler Signs In Spain With Lucentum Alicante, According To Team

Kyle Singler, who was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the third pick in the second round of the 2011 NBA Draft, has signed a deal with Lucentum Alicante in Spain, according to the team's Twitter feed (via Sportando). Singler, who was named the 2010 Final Four Most Outstanding Player in leading Duke to a national championship, will be able to return to the NBA if the lockout ends before the 2011-12 season is lost.

Lucentum Alicante has bounced between Spain's top two divisions over the past decade, finishing a safe but unspectacular 16th in the top-flight ACB last season. As such, Singler and the team won't be competing in any continental championships like Euroleague or Eurocup.

As an unsigned draft pick, Singler isn't obligated to return to the NBA midseason should the lockout end; that he has an opt-out clause shows that he feels he has a place with the Pistons and wants to make it in the top league in the world.
