The Greek club seems to be creating a very strong roster and after getting Loukas Mavrokefalides, now fills the paint with the presence of Daniel Orton. The 25-year old Center (2.08m tall) from U.S.A. was drafted at number 29 from the Orlando Magic in 2010, only to make his debut 2 years later when in 16 games he averaged 2,8 points and 2,4 rebounds in 11 minutes.
Next season found him in Oklahoma playing for the Thunder, where in 13 games he had quite similar stats, 2,5 points and 2,2 rebounds. He also played for Philadelphia 76ers for half a year in 2013 until he moved to China and then Philippines.
He is considered to be a talent that has not shined yet and the people in AEK believe in his abilities, adding him to their already powerful roster.
