DeAndre Liggins Arrested on Domestic Abuse Charge

Thunder guard DeAndre Liggins has been arrested and jailed on charges of domestic abuse, including domestic assault, battery with a dangerous weapon and domestic abuse in the presence of a minor. Liggins’ contract is fully unguaranteed for the upcoming season. From the Oklahoman: “Oklahoma City Thunder guard DeAndre Liggins has been jailed on domestic abuse complaints, according to Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office records. He was taken to the Oklahoma County jail. He is being held on complaints of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and domestic abuse in the presence of a minor, a jail official said. Oklahoma City police were called at about 4:40 p.m. to the 2300 block of NW 180th near North Pennsylvania Avenue. An official police incident report is not yet available, Lt. Arthur Gregory said. ‘From what I understand it was a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship,” Gregory said. ‘And I don’t know who the child was, if it was theirs, her’s or his.’ Liggins averaged 1.5 points and 1.4 rebounds in 39 games with the Thunder last season, his first in OKC. He is on a non-guaranteed contract for the upcoming season. Training camp begins in late September. ‘We are aware of the situation and take this matter seriously,’ Sam Presti said in an official statement from the team. ‘We are in the process of gathering more information and have no further comment at this time.’”

    First Terrence Jones, now DeAndre Liggins. If Brandon Knight like, pushes a handicapped child down a flight of stairs or something, I’m going to start to wonder what’s making everyone from the ’10-’11 UK squad slowly lose their minds.

    Exactly what you need to be doing when you’re barely in the league and going into the year that will make or break your career. Hope he has his passport ready

    I’ve convinced myself that this is an elaborate hoax by the Thunder to get more cap space.

    So much for him picking up some of the minutes from Martin’s junk…

    “Fully unguaranteed” made me laugh.
