Sixers Waive Daniel Orton

4:13pm: The Sixers announced the move, making it official.

3:41pm: The 76ers will waive Daniel Orton prior to today’s contract guarantee deadline, reports’s Marc Stein (via Twitter). The move will ensure that Philadelphia isn’t on the hook for Orton’s full-season salary.

Orton, 23, has appeared in 22 games for the Sixers this season, averaging 3.0 PPG and 2.8 RPG in 11.4 minutes per contest. After being released by the Thunder during training camp, Orton caught on with the Sixers, earning a spot on the regular season roster on a minimum-salary, non-guaranteed deal.

Assuming Orton is the only cut for the Sixers today, the team will open up a single spot on the 15-man roster. There’d be no need to fill that spot right away, but Philadelphia has been active this season in auditioning young players, gauging which of them, if any, could be long-term pieces. As such, I’d expect the team to at least fill that 15th roster spot with a player on a 10-day contract.

    The Sixers have ZERO centers on this roster now. Curious to see how many centers they’ll bring in the rest of the season. All part of tank mode
