NBA Trade News: Forward E.J. Singler Signs With Jazz

Utah Jazz has signed free agent forward E.J. Singler on Wednesday.

Utah Jazz has signed free agent forward E.J. Singler on Wednesday. The team management announced the signings, but as per team policy the terms and conditions of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Forward Singler spent 2014-15 season with BC Kalev/Cramo of Estonia. He appeared in 60 games last season averaging 6.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 17.2 minutes of action.

During the 2013-14 season, he played for Idaho Stampede, made 22 appearances including 4 starts. His elder brother Kyle Singler, currently plays in NBA for Oklahoma City Thunder.

Singler played four seasons at the Oregon Ducks in his collegiate career. He posted an average of 11.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 31.0 minutes during that phase.

With the inclusion of 6-foot-6, 215-pound Singler, Jazz roster now rises to 16 players.

But sources also revealed that Singler will be waived soon by the Jazz to bring him to Idaho Stampede. He won the D-League three-pointer contest in 2014. Currently, the Jazz think-tank is eyeing to groom rookies to efficient Jazzmen for future purposes. Had Utah not signed Singler at the right moment, he could have been picked up by any D-league affiliate.
