Biography: Singleton is considered one of the best defenders in the draft, but a late-season injury might cause him to fall to the end of the first round or possibly even into the second. Singleton, who has good speed for his size, averaged team highs of 13.1 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.0 steals as a junior for Florida State in 2010-11, and was an all-ACC third-team selection. He ended his career as the only player in school history to rank in the top 10 in steals (eighth with 180) and blocked shots (fourth with 136). Singleton was the ACC defensive player of the year in 2009-10 as a sophomore and just missed repeating this past season, but a broken right foot caused him to miss the final five games of the regular season. He returned for the NCAA tournament but wasn't much of a factor, averaging 7.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 33.3 percent shooting in 19.0 minutes as the Seminoles advanced to the regional semifinals. Singleton is a solid shooter when his feet are set, but he has a hard time scoring off the dribble, and the foot injury will raise additional questions about his offensive effectiveness. Although he may not develop into much of a scoring threat in the NBA, Singleton could succeed in the pros on the strength of his defensive instincts and ability.
