Chris Singleton was the Washington Wizards’ worst starter of the John Wall era

In his long three-year career, Chris Singleton only ever played for the Washington Wizards. This made calculating his stats much easier. Although, it was still painful.

Yet another young player who ended up on the Wizards who got a case of the injury bug. Singleton was the 18th overall pick and was a starter almost right off the bat only playing 11 games off the bench in his rookie outing.

Singleton is another player who reached their career high in games played for a season in his rookie campaign as he would go on to play 57 and 25 games in in his final two seasons.

In those three seasons with the Wizards, he averaged 4.1 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 0.8 steals per game in 17.6 minutes per game. Keep in mind that he started 42% of his games and only shot 37.6% from the field.

Singleton was a player who really offered nothing of value following his rookie season where he looked like he could develop into an interesting role player. He had an awful sophomore year and after only playing 25 games in his third season, never played in the NBA again.

These are my rankings for the five worst starters for the Washington Wizards who shared the floor with John Wall. Three of which were young players who never panned out and the other two were role players in roles bigger than what they should have had.
