The Sixers official Twitter account has confirmed reports that the team has waived center Daniel Orton.

ESPN’s Marc Stein first reported the deal (tweet), citing that the Sixers would have had to guarantee Orton’s deal for the remainder of the season if he was on the roster at 5 P.M. EST.

Orton averaged three PPG this season, while picking up nearly three rebounds a contest, in 11.4 MPG. It was his first season in Philadelphia.
