The 6’6” forward spent last season in the NBA D-League, splitting time between the 905 and the Idaho Stampede. Mississauga picked up Singler in March, and in the 10 games he spent with the Raps he averaged 14.7 points, and 7.5 rebounds per game.
E.J., who is the younger brother of OKC Thunder forward Kyle Singler, is three years removed from his time at Oregon, where he collected the most wins as a player in school history with 89 W’s. Since finishing with the Ducks, Singler has spent his career in the D-League, where he has averaged 10.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game in 68 appearances.

Singler is one five players currently in the hunt for the 15th and final roster spot with the Toronto Raptors, and faces stiff competition from Iowa’s Jarrod Uthoff, a 6’9” power forward who went undrafted this year and signed with the Raptors in August after playing with the Sacramento Kings in the Summer League.
