METAIRIE, La. (AP) — The New Orleans Pelicans have signed free agent guard DeAndre Liggins to a 10-day contract.
The roster addition, announced on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time), comes after the Pelicans received an injury hardship exemption by the NBA.
The 6'6" Liggins has played in 31 games earlier this season with Milwaukee, averaging 1.8 points, 1.6 rebounds in a little more than 15 minutes per game.
Liggins, who was a teammate of Darius Miller at Kentucky, has played in 150 career regular season games with Orlando, Oklahoma City, Miami, Cleveland, Dallas and Milwaukee since joining the NBA as a Magic second-round draft choice in 2011.
The Pelicans say Liggins is available to play in Wednesday night’s (Thursday, PHL time) game in Memphis.
