Orton (6-10, 255) signed with the Thunder D-League affiliate Tulsa 66ers Wednesday then was called up to the Thunder.

The center saw action in one preseason game for the Thunder and tallied 13 points and three rebounds in 19 minutes. Last season, Orton appeared in 16 games (two starts) as a member of the Orlando Magic where he recorded averages of 2.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 11.7 minutes per contest.

Orton went to Bishop McGuiness High School then spent one year at the University of Kentucky where he averaged 3.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.40 blocks during his freshman season.
