The Magic introduced DeAndre Liggins and Justin Harper to the Orlando media today. Magic GM Otis Smith and Stan Van Gundy had very good things to say about DeAndre and both men seem genuinely excited about their pick. Smith said he didn’t expect Liggins to be on the board and that they were very lucky to pick both him and Justin Harper.
Stan Van Gundy raved about Liggins’ work ethic and maturity. Van Gundy said he knew he was getting a solid defender in DeAndre, but DeAndre shot the ball much, much better in his three workouts than what he was led to believe.
