It continues to get worse for the man they call Daniel “I didnt finish my time at UK and will ultimately cost UK a scholarship” Orton. Today it was announced that Orton will be sent to the D-League to play for New Mexico in order to get some reps. It is likely the case that this is the best possible scenario for Orton who was going to see exactly no time with the Magic this year. However it is just another humbling moment for the guy who is still apparently trying to finish his last semester at UK…no wait, he isnt.
I do wish Orton the best, but I must say…if the two UK players who were drafted and are now D-Leaguers were to have stayed at Kentucky…its tough to think about.
