Singler leaves Iberostar Tenerife and retires from basketball

The US forward played at Real Madrid before making the jump to the NBA in 2012, and had signed this summer for the Canarian club.


The Iberostar Tenerife announced this Thursday by surprise the termination of the contract of one of its main players, the American forward Kyle Singler, who has decided to retire from basketball due to personal problems. Singler's 31-year-old decision came just a few months after his arrival in the Canarian team, in which he has only played two Endesa League games, after missing the first two due to an ankle injury.

The decision has been announced by the San Cristóbal de La Laguna team on Twitter. “CB Canarias and Kyle Singler have agreed to disconnect from the contractual relationship that united them. The club has agreed, after the relevant agreement, to the player's request to leave the team to leave the basketball active and attend to personal circumstances, ”says the statement. That of the American player is the second casualty in just 10 days for the team trained by Txus Vidorreta, after Pablo Aguilar announced last day 8 his decision to leave Iberostar Tenerife by not recovering from a wrist injury.

Singler's trajectory in Tenerife has been short-lived. In July, he announced his arrival at the Santiago Martín Pavilion from Monbus Obradoiro, a team for which he had signed last season after finishing his journey in the NBA. In his home country he played for six seasons, between 2012 and 2018, three in the Detroit Pistons and three in the Oklahoma City Thunder. Previously, he had played for a year at Real Madrid, where he won the 2012 Copa del Rey.
