Were you surprised at how harsh or severe the punishment was? Daniel Orton: The fine, not so much. I mean, the fine is OK because I said something about the refs, which I didn’t lie about that either. But I said something about the refs. But just to get kicked off the team was a little crazy. And then for the president of our team to compare Manny Pacquiao to Martin Luther King was just absurd, really. And I kind of just left it all alone. I didn’t really want to say anything because I thought it would die off. But I’m starting to learn now that it’s really not. It was on SportsCenter (a few days ago). It was just incredible to me.

Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has signed guards Vander Blue, Xavier Silas and David Stockton, forwards Rasual Butler and Damion James and center Daniel Orton. Per team policy, terms of the deals were not released. Blue (6-4, 200) went undrafted in 2013. The Marquette alum signed a 10-day contract with the Boston Celtics on January 22, 2014 and appeared in three games, scoring a total of five points in a combined 15 minutes. While on assignment with the Delaware 87ers of the D-League last season, he appeared in four games and averaged 19.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 30.5 minutes.
After missing out on LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony in July, the Lakers held a free agent workout Tuesday in Los Angeles. The workout included forward Michael Beasley; big men Dexter Pittman, Greg Stiemsma, and Daniel Orton; and guards Bobby Brown, Toney Douglas, Ben Hansbrough and Malcolm Lee, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

“The decision (to play in the D-League) was all about trying to get back into the NBA,” Orton recently told RidiculousUpside.com. “I’m trying to get a call-up. I had offers to go overseas and make some money, but I’m trying to get back into the NBA more so than anything.” He continued, “(The D-League) is the easiest way to get back. By not being overseas, NBA teams are able to get back to you quicker. You’ll be able to get to wherever you need to go in the NBA a lot quicker too.”
