Philadelphia 76ers waive center Daniel Orton

The Philadelphia 76ers today announced that they have waived center Daniel Orton.

Orton (6-10, 255) signed as a free agent with Philadelphia on October 16, 2013 and appeared in 22 games with four starts.

The Sixers are 12-22 this season, and their 2013-14 bright spot has been the fine play of rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams. Also, Thaddeus Young has been on a tear lately and was named Eastern conference Player of the Week.
