It looks like DeAndre Liggins will have a longer stay in New Orleans than first expected.
New Orleans is bringing back guard DeAndre Liggins on a two-year deal, league sources tell ESPN. His time on a 10-day contract with Pels recently ended. Liggins has shown himself to be a strong perimeter defender.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 4, 2018
Liggins, 29, had signed a ten-day contract with New Orleans after the Pelicans gained an injury exception to their roster. According to spotrac.com, Liggins will make $582,120 the rest of the season, and that his second year for just under $1.8 million is non-guaranteed.
In four games with the Pelicans, Liggins has shot 7-9 from the field, including 3-4 from three, for 17 points, including four steals, four rebounds, three assists, and one block.
The Milwaukee Bucks waived Liggins on January 7th of this year. He spent time with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Dallas Mavericks during the 2016-17 NBA season, though he never earned a multi-year contract that was guaranteed.
