Daniel Orton is ready – ready to do the little things the 76ers need.
Whether it’s setting picks, grabbing rebounds, or defending on the block, the 6-foot-10, 266-pound center said that’s what he’s going to do.
“I’ve pretty much always been a team player,” Orton said. “I just think that’s been my attitude toward everything.”
But the fourth-year NBA veteran also realizes that’s his only way to secure a roster spot with the Sixers (6-8) beyond this season. Orton signed a non-guaranteed deal Oct. 15, a week after being released by his hometown Oklahoma City Thunder.
