DeAndre Liggins Makes NBA Debut for Orlando Magic

Halfway through his rookie season, DeAndre Liggins made his first appearance for the Orlando Magic. On the active roster due to the injury to Jason Richardson, Liggins checked in at the 2:39 mark of the second period against the Milwaukee Bucks. In his first shift on the NBA hardwood, Liggins scored 1 point on 1-of-2 shooting on the foul line and snared a defensive rebound.

Liggins' drawn foul could just as easily have been a turnover, as it was a bang-bang block call against Bucks rookie Jon Leuer. Nonetheless, Liggins showed the athleticism that must have drawn Orlando to him when it made him the 55th overall selection in the 2011 NBA Draft.

On his lone touch, Liggins caught the ball on the right wing with the shot clock winding down and a bit of space. He could have taken the jumper off the catch, but instead put it on the floor and drove to the rim, drawing the foul. On an earlier possession, he moved actively away from the ball, making himself available on a cut through the lane during a Dwight Howard post-up.

Orlando leads Milwaukee, 49-48, at halftime.
