Bucks to waive Liggins; roster at 14

Well-traveled swingman DeAndre Liggins has landed with the Pelicans.

The Milwaukee Bucks will waive well-traveled swingman DeAndre Liggins, according to report by ESPN.

Sunday is the deadline for teams to waive players with non-guaranteed contracts, or to guarantee those deals for the rest of the season.

That is the situation in which Liggins finds himself, and after he is waived the Bucks will be $5.1 million below the luxury tax.

“Milwaukee will have a $757,427 cap hit on the Liggins waiver and 14 guaranteed contracts,” ESPN reported. “Milwaukee still has a $5 million and $3.4 million trade exception available.”

Liggins, 29, appeared in 31 games with the Bucks this season, compiling 1.8 points and faring well defensively.

In four NBA seasons, Liggins has also spent time with the Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder.

He will be free to sign with any team upon clearing waivers.
