MADRID — NBA prospect Kyle Singler has no regrets over his decision to spurn the Detroit Pistons to play basketball in Europe.

The Real Madrid forward, Detroit's second-round draft pick, is one of the few players not to return after the NBA lockout ended.

The former Duke forward says while the Pistons pressured him to return, he preferred to stay in Spain and hone his skills. The 23-year-old Oregon native says the opportunity to play abroad was too good to pass up.
