Head Coach of the New Orleans Pelicans, Alvin Gentry “loves” Cal’s Kentucky guys and has said it a few times. DeAndre Liggins is one of those guys on the Pelicans roster.
Liggins had a great sequence in the Pelicans win over the Pistons last night and Gentry praised him for that. Gentry also went on to mention what he had said to Calipari–the #BBN coach:
“I like your guys. Keep sending them my way.”
Previously Gentry had also teased of an All-Kentucky starting lineup considering he has five BBN guys. It would include Demarcus Cousins(who is now out for the season, making this impossible), Anthony Davis, Rajon Rondo, Darius Miller and DeAndre Liggins.
Liggins also said this of the starting five “that would be something a lot of people would be talking about.” DeAndre is also very happy to be around Kentucky guys. He joined former Kentucky teammate Darius Miller when he was signed to a two year deal in New Orleans.
Liggins went out with a left hip contusion against the Pistons and didn’t return. He finished with 6 minutes, 2 points, 1 assist and 1 steal, but he is looking to be available against the Lakers tomorrow night(Wednesday).
