But after making 61 appearances and starting 19 times for Cleveland this season while averaging 2.4 points, 1.7 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 12.3 minutes per contest, Liggins found himself waived by the defending champs and eventually headed to Dallas. The Mavs now hope the lanky guard can develop into a nightly contributor for the team next season following a summer of training in Dallas. “We liked him in the summer,” Mavs owner Mark Cuban explained shortly after claiming Liggins off waivers. “He’s long, he knows how to defend, he likes to defend, he shot 38 percent from three, he can move the ball and he’s played some point forward. You know, he doesn’t have much of a mid-range game, and that’s what has kind of hurt him. But we’ll see. You never know how someone is going to fit. He’s been around the block long enough now that he knows he’s got to lay it all out there, and so we’ll get a chance to talk to him and get to know him a little better this summer.”
“I liked him,” Carlisle said while praising Liggins following the Mavericks’ season finale win. “He was very aggressive in the second half, and in the fourth quarter a couple of his defensive plays really got us going. So, you know, he’s an NBA player. There’s no question about that. He’s an NBA defender. He plays with force, he plays with attitude, and we have some time. I think we have an opportunity to keep him around if we want to, so hopefully we’ll get him in the gym some post-season while we still have him under contract and before we have to decide on his option or whatever it is. And look, we’re always evaluating young veteran players that are hungry.”
