Cavaliers Sign DeAndre Liggins

The Cavaliers have officially signed shooting guard DeAndre Liggins to a contract, ensuring that he’ll come to training camp with the team, according to a RealGM report. Terry Pluto of The Plain Dealer wrote last month that Liggins would be among the Summer League players to go to camp with the Cavs.

While terms of the deal aren’t yet known, RealGM’s transactions log suggests that it’s a multiyear pact for Liggins. Given the Cavaliers’ cap limitations, a two-year, minimum-salary contract seems likely. It remains to be seen whether Liggins got a small guarantee as part of the agreement.

Liggins, 28, was selected in the second round of the 2011 draft by the Magic, and appeared in 57 total NBA games with Orlando, Oklahoma City, and Miami. However, he has spent most of his time in recent years in the D-League, winning Defensive Player of the Year in two of the last three seasons.

Playing for the Sioux Falls Skyforce in 2015/16, Liggins averaged 13.0 PPG, 7.0 APG, 6.3 RPG, and 2.1 SPG, shooting 43.4% on three-point attempts.

I think he does indeed make opening night roster. Maybe not all year, like Jared Cunningham last year but he is definitely a good body for camp and potentially a good wing defender to play 2 or 3 when LeBron is at 4.

He’s a good defensive wing. Not much on offense though. Then again, Cavs don’t need another shooter.
