Report: Thunder reach deal five-year, $25 million deal to keep Kyle Singler

Kyle Singler has one elite NBA skill — he can shoot the three ball. He is a career 37.8 percent from deep and has ridiculous range.

Aside that, his game is still a work in progress. But the Oklahoma City Thunder are willing to make a bet on the rest of that game.

The Thunder and Singler have reached a five-year deal, reports Adrian Wojnaroski of Yahoo Sports.

Singler never quite found a groove in Detroit, and Stan Van Gundy — who loves shooters – was willing to let him go in the Reggie Jackson trade. Singler’s game can seem awkward, but at times it’s effective.

The key here for the Thunder is they got him at a fair price — $5 million a year is easy to either absorb or move, depending on how things go.
