Per John Clay of the Lexington Herald-Ledger, Orlando’s second round draft pick, DeAndre Liggins, is considering playing overseas during the lockout.
For Liggins, doing what he has to do means exploring the option of playing overseas.
“We’re looking at trying to go overseas possibly,” said Liggins of his agent, Henry Thomas. “He’s working on that now.”
Liggins said he would like a contract that would allow him to return when the NBA lockout ends. If that’s not possible, however, he talked like a year overseas is a viable option.
Would that be for the money or for keeping in shape?
“Everything,” Liggins said. “For the money, staying in shape, compete. That’s everything.”
