Mad Ants sign Orris, get Pacer

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

The Central Division-leading Mad Ants, who play host to the Iowa Wolves at 5 p.m. Sunday, have won seven of their last nine games. Their roster has, yet again, changed quite a bit.

Today, the Pacers sent to the Mad Ants rookie center Ike Anigbogu. Fort Wayne also signed guard Michael Orris, who averaged 2 points, 3.5 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 17.2 minutes in 15 games for the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario, while Fort Wayne released Skylar Spencer, who had played sparingly in 15 games.

The Mad Ants are 2-0 since their leading scorer, Walt Lemon Jr., was signed by the New Orleans Pelicans and their captain, Trey McKinney Jones, went to the Indiana Pacers.
