AEK Athens is expected to cut former NBA big man Daniel Orton for disciplinary reasons. Per SDNA, AEK Athens have called Orton to apologize since they are very troubled with his behaviour. Orton,in the halftime of the game between AEK and the Skyliners,was laughing in the locker rooms. Sakota admonished him and when he left the locker rooms, Orton was out of control and started to smash things. Assistant coach Angelos Koronios tried to calm him down but Orton pushed him back. What is more,the 25-year-old center in the past, had missed unreasonably a training and had abandoned a team dinner.
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.
