E.J. Singler didn’t expect that graduation day would be even more of a stepping stone into the professional world as it already would be.

Tuesday, a day after he was decked out in an emerald green cap and gown celebrating with family and friends, Singler received a phone call from the Portland Trail Blazers organization informing the former South Medford High School and Oregon Ducks star that they’d like him to return to the Rose City for another workout.

“It’s been a good two days,” Singler said.

The fact that the Blazers chose for Singler to return points towards a strong interest to either use one of their second round picks on him or choose to go after him in free agency should he go undrafted. The 6’5″ SF competed in six-player workout on June 7 earlier this month that included Duke C Mason Plumlee, a target for the Blazers’ No. 10 overall pick.

“I’m thinking it’s a good thing,” Singler said of the Blazers’ interest in him as a potential prospect. “If they want me back, they saw something that they liked and they wanted to see a little bit more. Just really happy I got the opportunity to come back and showcase my skills.”

Listed below were his career statistics with the Ducks:

EJ Singler Stats

Singler, after requesting not to redshirt his freshman season in Eugene for then head coach Ernie Kent, started 22 games his first year with the Ducks and 132 total over an incredible four-year career.

The 2013 NBA Draft will be on Thursday June 27th. EDN will recap all of the Blazers’ move as well as any Ducks that may be drafted.
