The Washington Wizards announced Thursday center Daniel Orton has been waived.

The 24-year-old Orton, was a first-round draft pick out of Kentucky in 2010. In four years, he has spent time with four franchises.

The 6-foot-11 Orton was selected by the Orlando Magic after one season as a reserve with the Wildcats, where he was Wizards guard John Wall’s teammate. He was one of five Kentucky players picked in the first round that year.

He missed his entire rookie season because of a knee injury.
