Former Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard DeAndre Liggins has been formally arraigned on numerous felony domestic violence charges. Defense attorney Tony Coleman says not guilty pleas were entered on Liggins’ behalf in Oklahoma County District Court on Friday. Liggins faces two counts of kidnapping, two counts of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, three counts of domestic abuse in the presence of a minor and one count of violating a protective order. Liggins is free on bond.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case, an argument between Liggins and his girlfriend, Jasmine Horton, at the basketball player’s Oklahoma City home on Aug. 31 led to Liggins grabbing Horton by the hair, pulling her out of bed, throwing her to the ground and punching her 11 or 12 times. Most of the blows struck the back of her head, the affidavit states.
The Oklahoma City Thunder waived guard DeAndre Liggins, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti. Liggins appeared in 39 games for the Thunder during the 2012-13 season, averaging 1.5 points and 1.4 rebounds in 7.4 minutes per contest.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard DeAndre Liggins is accused of punching his girlfriend in front of the couple’s 2-year-old son on Saturday, according to a probable cause affidavit filed Tuesday. Jasmine Horton, who describes herself as Liggins’ girlfriend, said Liggins hit her in the head with his hand and then punched her in the head when she fell on the ground, according to the affidavit filed in Oklahoma County District Court. The couple’s 2-year-old son was in the room during the incident at their home, 2309 NW 180, she told police.
Additionally, because Liggins is on a non-guaranteed contract, he has to make the team to earn his $884,293 league minimum contract. The Thunder could waive him any day and wipe their hands of the alleged situation and Liggins’ salary, saving the organization some dollars while also saving it from a distraction. Many already think Liggins has played his last game in a Thunder uniform.
