Former Cleveland Cavalier DeAndre Liggins received a second 10-day contract from the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday.
The team announced the move on its website.
The 6-foot-6, 209-pound Liggins played in just one game during his first 10-day pact with the Pelicans, scoring four points in 11 minutes of time, but with Solomon Hill, Tony Allen, Frank Jackson and Alexis Ajinca all sidelined because of injuries, the team needed depth.
New Orleans was granted a $2.75 million disabled player exception Wednesday.
Liggins played in 61 games, making 19 starts, for Cleveland in the 2016-17 season before being released and signing with the Dallas Mavericks.
The 29-year-old University of Kentucky product began this season with the Milwaukee Bucks, averaging 1.8 points and 1.6 rebounds in 15.5 minutes in 31 games, including one start.
Liggins was waived by Milwaukee on Jan. 7 and signed his first 10-day contract with New Orleans on Jan. 10.
Once his second 10-day contract expires, New Orleans (24-21) will have to either sign him for the rest of the season or release him.
