Warriors Waive Shaun Livingston

The Golden State Warriors have parted ways with one of their veteran bench players. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Warriors have waived guard Shaun Livingston. The Warriors also made the announcement on Twitter.

Livingston is guaranteed $2 million of his $7.7 million salary. The Warriors will stretch his remaining contract, which will cost them $666,000 (plus taxes) for the next three seasons.

Livingston joined the Warriors in 2014. He signed with the Warriors with a three-year, $16 million deal. Since then, Livingston became one of the Warriors’ key bench players. He won three championships during his stint with the Warriors. He won championships in 2015, 2017 and 2018. His third championship came after he re-signed with the Warriors on a three-year, $24 million contract.

Despite being waived, the veteran guard has no plans of retiring. With the right team, the 33-year old guard can be a valuable piece off of a bench.

Last season, Livingston averaged 4.0 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists. His minutes decreased, but he delivered when the Warriors needed him. He played in his fifth straight NBA Finals in the 2018-19 season, where the Warriors lost to the Raptors in six games.

Livingston reinvented himself when he joined the Warriors. He entered the league with high expectations, but injuries prevented him from flourishing. His stint with the Warriors allowed him to become a valuable role player that became a champion.

As of now, Livingston’s name has not come up in any rumors but that may change. Contending teams could reach out to Livingston in hopes of adding him to their bench. So, there is a good chance he’ll be on another roster shortly. It is only a matter of who.
