+ Long-armed defensive prospect. Good athlete who can handle ball.
+ Erratic outside shooter. Bad foul shooter. Scored at very low rate in college.
When you barely average a point every four minutes as a collegian, you better be a heck of a defender to make it to the NBA. Liggins might be; while his rates of blocks and steals were pretty ordinary, he drew raves for his overall play at that end.
Offensively, however, Liggins will need to find a role in the pros. He's neither a good shooter nor a good decision-maker, although he does have some ballhandling skills and is athletic enough to score at the rim. In that sense, he'll be trying to make it as a poor man's Tony Allen, but even Allen had far better offensive stats as a collegian. The Bulls may invest this year in some D-League seasoning for Liggins to see if his offensive game can turn the corner.
