NBA Role: scrappy, defensive-minded guard • CLE Depth Chart: Spot Minutes

A former UK Wildcat, DeAndre Liggins gives Tyronn Lue added depth on the perimeter in 2017; a defender by trade, Liggins has bounced around since beggining his career in 2011 – hasn’t yet caught on; great athlete w/ quick hands & feet – Liggins can stay in front of his man, will strip & rip if there’s an avenue for a takeaway; tough to keep in for more than 15 mins. at a time since Liggins doesn’t space the floor all that well – should be included in a few of CLE’s more uptempo lineups (converts well on the break); practice fodder or X-Factor? – if Liggins knocks down threes, Lue has no choice but to give him time
