Articles about Daniel Horton

65th: - Reno Bighorns - Daniel Horton, Michigan

The last two years of the Daniel Horton Experience have not gone well. In 2008-09, due to a combination of injuries and his team's (Pau Orthez's) struggles, Horton played in only 4 games all year, averaging 11.3 points and 4.0 assists. And last year was even worse; now with a different French team (Hyeres-Toulon), Horton played the first three games of the French league season before getting injured. He missed two months of action and only returned in the new year; he then played seven more games, yet in those ten games, Horton averaged only 3.4 points and 3.0 assists in 22 minutes per game. He shot 10-46 from the field; 8-33 from two point range and 2-13 from three. And then he was released.

Four years ago, Horton was in the NBA with the Miami Heat with a small dollop ($50,000) of guaranteed money. Now he's in round five of the D-league draft. The jumpshot, with which he made his name at Michigan, has not been with him for most of his professional career. Horton surely knows he needs to begin again, hence why he's here. It's probably the right decision.
