The New Orleans Pelicans are expected to sign swingman DeAndre Liggins to a two-year contract, according to a report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Liggins, who signed a pair of 10-day contracts with the Pelicans beginning on Jan. 10, had his second 10-day expire on Jan. 30.

The 29-year-old played in four games during his 20-day stint with New Orleans and averaged 4.3 points in 12.8 minutes per game.

Liggins was waived on Jan. 7 by the Milwaukee Bucks and joined the Pelicans three days later. In 31 games with the Bucks, Liggins averaged 1.8 points and 1.6 rebounds in 15.5 minutes per game. Milwaukee was 10-1 when Liggins played more than 18 minutes.

Liggins' addition is expected to bring the Pelicans' roster to a maximum of 17 players, including a pair of guards, Mike James and Charles Cooke, on two-way contracts.
