Singleton Leaves Wizards For China

James Singleton has signed on to play next season in China with the Xinjiang Gyang Hui Flying Tigers.

The Wizards had some interest in bringing Singleton back for the league minimum.

Washington acquired Singleton in their deadline deal with Dallas in February.

"Playing with the Wizards was a great experience," Singleton said.

"They gave me a chance to play because of my talent and work ethic, and not sit behind a name. I'm going back overseas to play basketball because of my passion, not the pay or the fame. Overseas, they allow players to play, grow and mature."

I don't understand the whole

I don't understand the whole "leaves Wizards part." It's not like the Wizards had an offer on the table for him. They already have 12 guys under contract maybe 13 if they sign Hamadi N'diaye. Anyways I respect Singleton because he's a scrapper but as an undersized hustling 4 he simply wouldn't get any minutes for the Wizards. Trevor Booker was drafted to be the better version of him but even Booker won't get much run this year and I doubt Singleton would get minutes over Josh Howard and Al Thornton at the 3. I wish all the best to him and it wouldn't surprise me if he showed up on an NBA roster in the future.
