The deal caps an eventful stretch for Liggins, who is joining his sixth team in six months. After playing 61 games for the Cavaliers last season, he was waived in April and claimed by the Mavericks. He played just one game in Dallas before the season ended and was traded to the Rockets in late June. Houston sent Liggins to the Clippers as part of the Chris Paul deal, then late last month, L.A. shipped him and with cash considerations to Atlanta, which immediately waived him.
This will be the second stint in Miami for Liggins, who signed two 10-day contracts and played one game for the team in 2014. He spent two seasons with Miami’s G League affiliate in Sioux Falls, twice earning Defensive Player of the Year honors.
