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.
The Milwaukee Bucks will waive guard DeAndre Liggins before Sunday's deadline to guarantee deals for season, league sources tell ESPN. Liggins played 31 games, impacted defensively.

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.
