The Oklahoma City Thunder choose to waive DeAndre Liggins following his arrest for domestic abuse.

The Oklahoma Thunder have chosen to release DeAndre Liggins following his arrest for domestic battery last week.

Liggins was accused of assaulting his girlfriend in front of their two-year-old son and has since been charged with seven felonies, which include domestic abuse, domestic battery with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping and violating a protective order.

The 25-year-old had a non-guaranteed contract with the Thunder for the upcoming season which meant that Thunder general manager Sam Presti was able to end the franchise's link with Liggins.

Chicago-born Liggins' attorney, Billy Bock, recently claimed that his client "certainly denies ever laying a hand on a female" shortly before he was released on bail.
