ORLANDO – The fact Cole Aldrich is still logging major Summer League minutes two seasons after Oklahoma City swung a trade to take him with the No. 11 pick in the 2010 draft means his NBA future remains uncertain. But he’s a two-year veteran who arrived after three seasons of high-level college basketball at national power Kansas and the Thunder essentially chose him over 2009 first-rounder Byron Mullens, gifted to Charlotte last season for a future second-round pick.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - The Detroit Pistons announced today that the club has signed their 2011 second round draft selection Kyle Singler to a multi-year contract. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

“We are pleased to have Kyle Singler join our organization knowing he brings great character and skill to our team,” said Joe Dumars, President of Basketball Operations for the Detroit Pistons. “We watched him grow as a player throughout his season in Spain last year and we feel he’s going to be a great addition to our roster going forward.”

ORLANDO – There are no playoffs once the Orlando Pro Summer League schedule concludes Friday and there’ll be no shiny trophy to take home for the team that can wrap up the week with a perfect 5-0 record. The priorities are a little bit different than they are in the regular season, when winning is the overwhelming objective all 82 times the uniforms are donned.
