When Josh Harrellson first came to the NBA as a rookie in 2011, he was fortunate that he ended up with the New York Knicks who valued a 6-11 three-point shooter.


Manny Pacquiao maybe be world famous for his skills in the boxing ring, but he also plays professional basketball in the Philippines. 


Daniel Orton, waived by the Wizards early Thursday, asked for his release so he can play in China, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed to CSNwahington.com.


In a move by the Wizards that was hardly a surprise Thursday, they waived Daniel Orton who had been dealing with a left calf strain and failed to appear in any of the five preseason games.


In winning their fourth of five preseason games, the Wizards fought hard to get by a spirited Israeli team in Maccabi Haifa.
