The Oklahoma City Thunder are expected to re-sign restricted free agent Kyle Singler to a three-year contract, per Yahoo's Marc Spears:

Signing Singler seems to be a priority for the Thunder, as they recently traded Jeremy Lamb to the Charlotte Hornets to create cap space. The team lacks depth at the small forward position, after players such as Perry Jones and Steve Novak didn't live up to the expectations to fill that role when Durant was injured.

By re-signing Singler, the team will have a back-up wing who can defend and shoot the ball from distance. Singler averaged 6.0 points, 1.1 assists, and 2.4 rebounds per game while shooting .386 from the field and .398 from the 3-point line.
