METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The New Orleans Pelicans have signed free agent guard DeAndre Liggins to a 10-day contract.
The roster addition, announced on Wednesday, comes after the Pelicans received an injury hardship exemption by the NBA.
The 6-foot-6 Liggins has played in 31 games earlier this season with Milwaukee, averaging 1.8 points, 1.6 rebounds in a little more than 15 minutes per game.
Liggins, who was a teammate of Darius Miller at Kentucky, has played in 150 career regular season games with Orlando, Oklahoma City, Miami, Cleveland, Dallas and Milwaukee since joining the NBA as a Magic second-round draft choice in 2011.
The Pelicans say Liggins is available to play in Wednesday night's game in Memphis.
