Thunder at 4 p.m.: Orton re-signs with Thunder

NORMAN — A week after being cut by the Thunder, Daniel Orton finds himself back wearing a Thunder uniform today. The Oklahoma City native was re-signed to the team by Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti.

 Orton (6-10, 255), who signed with the Thunder D-League affiliate Tulsa 66ers earlier today, is the first Thunder NBA D-League call-up of the 2012-13 NBA season, which is only one day old. 

Orton joined the Thunder in the off season after leaving the Orlando Magic, where he was drafted from Kentucky after his freshman year in 2009-2010. Last year Orton appeared in 16 games where he recorded averages of 2.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 11.7 minutes per contest. He played in only one preseason game for the Thunder and scored 13 points and three rebounds in 19 minutes of action. 

Orton is a graduate of  Bishop McGuiness in Oklahoma City.
