The Los Angeles Clippers already have a full roster of players for the 2017-18 NBA season, but they continue to make moves in the hopes of avoiding the luxury tax that could come with it. The Milwaukee Bucks have also been busy giving veteran players Training Camp contracts in the hopes of stumbling across a good player for next season.

DeAndre Liggins gets traded and waived

DeAndre Liggins got traded to the Los Angeles Clippers earlier this offseason as part of the Chris Paul to Houston Rockets deal. Now he finds himself without a team for the upcoming NBA regular season.

Adrian Wojnarowski of NBA ESPN has reported that the Clippers are trading away Deandre Liggins and some cash to the Atlanta Hawks for draft rights of an immediately undetermined player.

This move by the Clippers will give them a $1.67 million trade exception, good for one year, and drops them $122,000 below the NBA luxury tax. League sources also say that Liggins will be directly waived by the Atlanta Hawks since his contract is not fully guaranteed.

DeAndre Liggins entered the NBA in the offseason of 2011 where he was drafted with the 53rd overall pick by the Orlando Magic. Liggins only appeared in 119 NBA games since he joined the NBA. He played for the Orlando Magic, Oklahoma City Thunder, Miami Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Dallas Mavericks.

Liggins also had some playing time in the NBA D-League and overseas (Germany and Russia). Liggins has career averages of 2.1 points, 0.1 blocks, 0.6 steals, 0.6 assists, and 1.5 rebounds per game. During that time he has shot 41.4 percent from the field, 34.8 percent from the three-point line, and 55.8 percent from the charity stripe.

Joel Anthony signs training camp contract with Bucks

Adam McGee of Behind the Buck Pass has reported that veteran big man Joel Anthony will join the Milwaukee Bucks training camp. He and Gerald Green will be the final additions to the training camp roster of the Milwaukee Bucks. Joel Anthony is a 35-year-old NBA veteran who has played 11 seasons in the NBA and has two NBA championship rings when he played for the Miami Heat in 2011-12 and 2012-13.

Last season he played 19 games with the San Antonio Spurs and now he looks to get the last roster spot on the Milwaukee Bucks team for next season. Anthony has career averages of 2.2 points, 1.1 blocks, 0.3 steals, 0.2 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game while shooting 51.3 percent from the field and 62.2 percent from the free throw line.
