The Jazz have waived small forward E.J. Singler, the team has announced. Singler was signed by the team just yesterday, which means that his addition was likely made with an eye on sending him to the D-League for the 2015/16 campaign, though that is merely my speculation.
Singler, 25, is the younger brother of Thunder small forward Kyle Singler. Utah’s Singler went undrafted in 2013 and was in training camp last season with the Trail Blazers. He spent the rest of the 2014/15 season with BC Kalev/Cramo of Estonia, appearing in 60 games, 19 of them starts, and averaging 6.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 17.2 minutes of action per contest. During the 2013/14 campaign he played for the Idaho Stampede, Utah’s D-League affiliate, logging averages of 14.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 28.2 minutes in 22 appearances.
Utah now has a roster count of 15 players, including 12 possessing fully guaranteed pacts.
