Shaun Livingston waived by Golden State Warriors, determined to continue playing

The Golden State Warriors have made the decision to waive Shaun Livingston as they enter the post-Kevin Durant era in Bay Area.

Livingston, who will be 34 before the start of next season, joins a free-agent market that is full of contending teams searching for championship-hardened veterans to fortify benches.

Livingston re-signed with the team in July of 2017 on a three-year, $24 million contract. ESPN and The Athletic reported the Warriors are parting ways with Livingston because he is guaranteed $2 million of his $7.7 million salary for the 2019-20 season. However, his ability to guard multiple positions gave head coach Steve Kerr plenty of defensive flexibility.

The series is set 5,000 years before, as the " golden Age of Heroes descends to its darkest hour", according to HBO . Martin prefers this title but said he is also alright with the title The Longest Night .


While Livingston was reportedly strongly considering retirement, Wojnarowski reported that Livingston is "determined to continue playing". Livingston has career averages of 6.3 points, 2.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists, all while shooting at an efficient 48.6 percent from the field.

But if Livingston is unable to find a new home, he walks off into the sunset with three National Basketball Association championships and a secure spot in the story of the Warriors' dynasty.
