(SportsNetwork.com) - The Oklahoma City Thunder have reportedly retained restricted free agent forward Kyle Singler with a five-year contract extension.
Yahoo! Sports reported the pact, which cannot be officially announced until the NBA's free agency moratorium is lifted July 9, to be worth $25 million over its duration.
Singler played in 26 games and started 18 for the injury-plagued Thunder after being acquired in a trade-deadline deal with Detroit in February. The former Duke standout averaged 6.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and shot 39.8 percent from 3- point range over 80 overall games (58 starts) with the Pistons and Oklahoma City last season.
A second-round pick (No. 33 overall) of Detroit in the 2011 draft, Singler has posted averages of 8.1 points and 3.4 rebounds over three NBA seasons.
