DeAndre Liggins will be looking to get back into the NBA this year, and the Las Vegas Summer League will provide him with that opportunity.

Liggins, who just won the NBA D-League championship and NBADL Defensive Player of the Year, is playing with the Cleveland Cavaliers for their summer league squad, who announced their full roster on Tuesday. Liggins will also be playing with former Louisville guard Trey Lewis, former Tennessee guard Jordan McRae, and my favorite name in all of sports, Sir'Dominic Pointer.
