DeAndre Liggins signs two-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans

The BBNBA is at it again.

After his second ten-day contract with the team expired two weeks ago, DeAndre Liggins has signed a two-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Liggins joins Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo, and Darius Miller as former Wildcats on the Pelican roster.

Terrence Jones had an agreement with the Pelicans on Friday night, but that deal immediately fell through as the team wanted to keep flexibility at the trade deadline. Just a few hours later, New Orleans reached an agreement with 35-year old Emeka Okafor, who hasn’t played an NBA game in five years.

We were this close to having a record six Wildcats on the same roster. This close.

I guess I’ll be alright with five for now.

Congratulations to DeAndre on locking up a deal!

    Truely makes his living on the defensive side would like to see his offense open up that would make the team find him as a player to hang onto

    Jones has had some good periods of play, he must be a real head case or something. Congrats to DeAndre !!
