Liggins & Hamilton Will Represent Force At All-Star Game

February 4, 2014, 10:45 PM by Cat Clark

Liggins & Hamilton Will Represent Force At All-Star Game
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The 8th annual NBA D-League All-Star game will showcase two Skyforce players in DeAndre Liggins and Justin Hamilton on February 15th in New Orleans. Here is a look at the two Sioux Falls stars.

Liggins was a standout at Kentucky. He played 56 NBA games with the Magic and Thunder. Now he is working his way back to the league by averaging over 15 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and leading the D-League in steals.

"He is a great player, an all around guy, and it seems like he is getting a quadruple-double every game which is amazing. It is so fun to play with guys of that caliber. He helps us get more and more wins," Skyforce Center Justin Hamilton said.

"I think he will get another opportunity and we are really fortunate that he is here now. He has had the right mentality since day one, he just wants to get better, and he lets the other pieces fall where they may. Whether it is in Miami or another NBA team I know he will be ready when he gets the opportunity," Skyforce Head Coach Pat Delany said.

The man behind the mask is also going to New Orleans looking to catch the eyes of NBA scouts. Hamilton leads the team with over 20 points a contest while hauling in 9 boards a night as well.

"Ham is our best player. He does everything very skilled, but most of all he is a great person and I love everything about him," Skyforce Guard DeAndre Liggins said.

"He has been great from day one. He does everything on and off the court you ask him to do, he is an ultimate professional. He has the right character and the right mindset to get to the next level. He just needs an opportunity now and the opportunity he is going to get by performing in New Orleans at the All-Star game is a credit to him and all of the hard work he has put in," Delany said.

Although the All-Star game is a fun display of the D-Leagues talent, it also an interview for 20 players that hope to make an NBA roster.

"I just want to represent my team, play hard, and have fun at the game. I just want to try to do what I've been doing throughout the season," Hamilton said.

"I can't go out there and play casual because it's the All-Star game. I'm going to play hard because that is all I know and that is the only way I know how to play," Liggins said.

You can catch the game live on NBA-TV two o’clock Central time.
