Singleton will play with the Magic during the Orlando Pro Summer League in early July, David Pick of Basketball Insiders reports.

Singleton spent most of the 2014-15 season in the D-League for the Thunder's affiliate after beginning the season in the Chinese Basketball Association. The Magic are contractually committed to 11 active players and a first-round draft pick next season, offering the slimmest of chances Singleton could finagle his way to the team's training camp.

Singleton has signed with the Pacers, The Washington Post reports.

The small forward has spent his previous three seasons with the Wizards, averaging 17.6 minutes and 4.1 points over that span. Those totals dropped last year as it appeared evident the Wizards were gearing up to part ways with the Florida State product. Despite this drop off, Singleton could find a significant amount of playing time with the Pacers this season after the leg injury to Paul George.

Chris Singleton has received some interest from the Heat and Pacers.

These two teams lost some notable free agents on the wings and are just looking for depth here. Singleton hasn't really improved in the past three seasons and would just be an end-of-the-bench guy at best.

Chris Singleton scored 13 points in 25 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday with nine boards, two assists, one steal and three fouls.

He's played in just 15 games this season with an average of 10.9 minutes per night. The Wizards didn't pick up Singleton's option heading into the season, so they're not really going to be too interested in developing the 2014 free agent. Chances are his minutes will go back down once Kevin Seraphin (knee) is healthy.

Chris Singleton started the second half of Friday's game for injured Martell Webster (ankle), scoring seven points on 1-of-10 shooting with eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and a three in 33 minutes.

Singleton has flashed the ability to post versatile lines in the past, but more often than not there will be a glaring issue or two similar to his 1-of-10 mark from the field. It's hard to get behind him in standard leagues even as a short-term pickup, but Webster's injury looks like it's at least somewhat serious and there might be a window for some deep league value here.

Chris Singleton (foot) played one minute in his season debut during Tuesday's 116-111 victory over the Lakers.

The Wizards didn't pick up their team option on him last month and Singleton hasn't lived up to being a first-round pick. He was viewed as a great defender, but there has been no growth on the offensive side. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Chris Singleton (foot) may be available for "spot" minutes vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

Martell Webster will be occupied starting at SG in place of Bradley Beal (leg), which leaves more minutes available at SF, and Singleton's return is bad news for the limited roles of Jan Vesely and Trevor Booker.

Chris Singleton (foot) participated in Monday's practice, but his status for Tuesday's game is uncertain.

He has yet to play this season and his status will likely hinge upon how his foot responds to today's activity. Once healthy, he'll battle for minutes at both forward spots off the bench.

Chris Singleton will miss 6-8 weeks after surgery to repair a fractured metatarsal in his left foot.

Singleton suffered a Jones fracture, an injury which typically requires "screw fixation ... and the use of a bone stimulator," according to podiatrist Michael K. Lowe. Singleton's absence until late Oct. or mid-Nov. means more playing time for Trevor Ariza and Otto Porter at SF. Even at full health, his limited minutes and shaky shooting make him a dubious fantasy option.

Chris Singleton said he needs to "break the habit" of leaning back when he shoots, which results in minimal arc.

Singleton has good size and strength at 6'9", 230 lbs, but his broken jumper (37.6 percent FGs) has prevented him from truly carving out a niche with the Wizards. Nothing he did during Summer League suggests he'll make a big leap in 2013-14.
