Orthez released Daniel Horton
Pau Orthez released Daniel Horton(1.90-PG/SG) and it was announced via their official website. Horton did not want to renew his contract with Pau Orthez after 4 games. Pau Orthez is currently at the bottom of the leaderboard with a 0-11 record and has not managed to score a single win. Tough times for sure for the legendary french team.
Horton graduated from Michigan in 2006 and tried his luck briefly in Turkey with Karsiyaka. He returned back to the States playing in the NBDL next season and halfway through he was recruited by Toulon. This season he averaged 11.3 points 4 assists and 1.3 rebounds in 4 games with Orthez.
