DeAndre Liggins is in Indianapolis today to work out with the Indiana Pacers. He’s joined by our favorite Louisville-killer, DeMonte Harper of Morehead State. Liggins is coming off what he called his best team workout with the San Antonio Spurs over the weekend. He’s only worked out for three teams so far with another twelve he hopes to visit before the draft on June 23.
At this point, Liggins and his agent have been receiving good feedback from teams and his draft status is really up to the remaining workouts leading up to the draft. If Liggins is confident in how he did in just his third team workout, hopefully he can continue to improve in these one-on-one workout scenarios and really show teams what he can bring to the table. Everyone knows of his ability to guard multiple positions, it’s just a matter of showing he can be productive on the offensive end as well.
Liggins has been selling himself to NBA GMs as a Tony Allen or a Bruce Bowen type of player. Both of those guys are lockdown defenders who can also knock down an open three when called on. That comparison is exactly what it’s going to take for a team to draft Liggins in the first round where we all want to see him go.
Go Cats. Go Liggins. #threegoggles
