The Thunder have recalled DeAndre Liggins from the D-League, reports Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman (Twitter link). The 6'6" swingman is with the team in New Orleans for the game against the Hornets tonight.
Liggins was sent down on November 22nd, along with fellow University of Kentucky product Daniel Orton. We heard on Thursday that the team had also assigned rookie Jeremy Lamb to the D-League, so Liggins' promotion seems to be a corresponding move, since the limit on the number of players a team may have at its D-League affiliate at a single time is believed to be two.
In three games with the Tulsa 66ers, Liggins averaged 11.7 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.0 assists in 38.7 minutes per contest. He's seen just 11 total minutes over four games with Oklahoma City this year. Liggins signed a minimum-salary deal that's partially guaranteed for $25K with the Thunder before the season, after having spent his rookie year with the Magic.
