ALICANTE, Spain (AP) -- Detroit Pistons rookie Kyle Singler has signed with Spanish club Lucentum Alicante for the upcoming season if a lockout wipes out the NBA season.

Alicante announced the deal on its website Tuesday saying the American, voted best player in leading Duke to the 2010 NCAA championship, has a get-out clause that allows him to return to the NBA should a lockout be avoided.

The 23-year-old Singler can play various forward positions and was taken 33rd by the Pistons in the draft.

Alicante plays in Spain's top league.
