James Singleton played just a few months with the Washington Wizards following a mid-season trade in the 2009-10 season before declining a contract from the team in September 2010 to sign with a team in China. He returned to the Wizards in 2012, playing 12 games with the team, but will again choose not to sign with the team, according to his agent.
Speaking to Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner, Singleton's agent said his client will not be returning to the Wizards after declining the team's contract offer. Michael Lee of the Washington Post confirmed the report, saying that the Wizards were unwilling to go above the veteran minimum for the forward.
In 12 games, Singleton averaged just under 22 minutes per game with 8.2 points and 6.8 rebounds.
