Liggins Drafted 53rd by Magic

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Orlando Magic have selected Kentucky
guard DeAndre Liggins with the 53rd pick in Thursday night's NBA
draft.
Liggins averaged 8.6 points and 4 rebounds in his third and
final seasons with Kentucky. He is known more for his defense and
toughness.
The Magic did not have a first-round pick, trading it to Phoenix
in December as part of the deal that sent Marcin Gortat, Vince
Carter and Mickael Pietrus to the Suns in exchange for Hedo
Turkoglu and Jason Richardson. The Suns then dealt the Magic pick
(No. 23) to Houston in another trade. The Rockets used the pick
Thursday to take forward Nikola Mirotic of Spain.
