Justin Hamilton and DeAndre Liggins gain more respect for their performance as members of the Sioux Falls Skyforce this season. Both earned 2014 All-NBA Development League status in a release announced Thursday.
“Defense is my calling card.” That statement and variations of it came from the lips of Sioux Falls Skyforce guard/forward DeAndre Liggins who was named 2014 NBA Development League Defensive Player of the Year.
February 27, 2014 arrives with 38 days remaining in the NBA D-League season. A multitude of moves will transpire between call-ups to the NBA and trades that will happen before the March 7 deadline for D-League deals.
There have been championship campaigns and lean years, but one constant of the Sioux Falls Skyforce is their best players get to the NBA. Over 25 seasons of operation, 22 of them have included a player being plucked from the ranks to serve in the Association.
