DeAndre Liggins has been waived by the Milwaukee Bucks

After nearly three months with the organization, the Milwaukee Bucks have waived former Wildcat DeAndre Liggins.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news, saying the Bucks released him last night to avoid guaranteeing his deal for the entire season.

ESPN reports that in games Liggins played 18 minutes or more, the Bucks were 10-1. His limited shooting ability, however, kept him from staying on as a long-term piece for the team.

Milwaukee was the sixth destination for Liggins in his NBA journey, where he has carved out a solid career on defensive intensity and leadership in the locker room. He also played for Orlando, Oklahoma City, Miami, Cleveland and Dallas, to go with several G-League organizations along the way.

Wojnarowski reports that though Liggins is no longer a Buck, he will be a hot commodity to be claimed off waivers or sign 10-day deals with contending organizations throughout the year.

He’s searching for a new home now, but he won’t be a free agent for long.

Best of luck to Liggins in finding the right fit at his next stop.

    It isn’t as though DeAndre is trying and failing offensively. The problem is he isn’t trying. He attempts very few FG’s during games, preferring instead to focus on defense because he knows that is his calling card. IMO he is focusing a bit TOO MUCH on it. He needs to be a little more selfish offensively, and then he will find a permanent home. Until then, he will continue to bounce around and still earn a living that’s about 30x better than mine 😉
