The Warriors will pick up their $5.8 million team option for Shaun Livingston.
He'll be a combo guard and might even see his minutes bump up with the lack of depth on the Warriors now. In the playoffs last year, Livingston averaged 8.2 points, 3.2 boards, 3.3 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.2 blocks. That's a fair expectation going forward, but he's still not a strong target in standard leagues. Jul 4 - 2:22 PM

The Warriors have picked up their team option on Shaun Livingston.

The Warriors could have saved $2.7 million by releasing Livingston prior to July 1, but that would make zero sense given how perfect of a fit Livingston is in the Warriors' system as Stephen Curry's backup. Livingston will now be on the book for $5.7 million next season, which is excellent value for a player of his caliber. This will not alter the Dubs chances of signing Kevin Durant as an unrestricted free agent.

Shaun Livingston followed up his Game 1 heroics with seven points, five assists and two rebounds during Sunday's easy victory in Oakland.

Livingston has developed an automatic mid-range shot and his length gives him a mismatch vs. players like Matthew Dellavedova and Kyrie Irving. He finished 3-of-4 from the field tonight, while backcourt mate Leandro Barbosa added 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting. The Warriors' bench has thus far been a decisive advantage in the series.

After tearing his ACL and PCL nine years ago, Shaun Livingston said he still has to take care of his knee every day.

"I still have to train. I still have to train and do all my rehab. I have to ice," Livingston said. "It’s really a day-to-day routine. I can’t get behind." This makes his comeback story even better and it's no secret that he was the hero of Game 1 for the Warriors with a playoff career-high 20 points with four rebounds, three assists and one steal. "I just kind of stayed true to my game, played to my strengths," he said. If Livingston and the rest of the Warriors' bench can stay hot, the Cavs are going to be in serious trouble.

Shaun Livingston was magnificent during a Game 1 win over the Cavs on Thursday, scoring a playoff career-high 20 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and no turnovers in 27 minutes.

The Warriors bench was terrific and was the difference. Livingston played good defense to go with a full array of offensive moves. HIs length on defense and post-up presence have been his calling card, so that fits in nicely in this kind of matchup. He won't be this good, though.
Jun 3 - 12:04 AM

Shaun Livingston has been ejected from Monday's game against the Blazers.

He was upset with the refs for what he thought was a missed foul call on C.J. McCollum. It did look like he was hit on the head on his way up, so he argued with the ref on the next trip up the court. Livingston finished with four points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two turnovers. We'll get more Stephen Curry than we bargained for.
May 10 - 12:03 AM

Shaun Livingston handed out 10 assists against the Blazers on Saturday, adding five points, three rebounds and two turnovers.

This could be the last game as the starter for Livingston. The Blazers looked awesome today and Stephen Curry (knee) is expected to go through 3-on-3 on Sunday. Regardless, he's been fantastic this postseason.
May 7 - 11:10 PM

Shaun Livingston scored 14 points (6-of-15 FGs) with four assists, four rebounds, one block and one steal in 33 minutes vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

The 15 shot attempts were a season high, as the Warriors are trying to utilize his size in the post against Portland's smaller guards. Livingston has filled in admirably for Stephen Curry (knee) and has now scored 10 or more points in all five of his starts this postseason. Curry is progressing, but his status for Game 3 is still up in the air. If the MVP sits, Livingston is a nice option in DFS if you're trying to save a few bucks.
May 4 - 1:50 AM

Shaun Livingston said that he'll be more aggressive on the offensive end for however long Stephen Curry (knee) is sidelined.

"I have to be more aggressive just because of the production that's out," Livingston said. "I don't expect to make all of that up — this guy leads the league in scoring. But it's really important we all remain aggressive and confident." Livingston knocked down 7-of-8 shots during Wednesday's series clinching Game 5 win over Houston, on his way to 16 points, three boards, three assists and just one turnover. Curry likely won't be ready for the start of the second-round, so Livingston could make for a nice low-budget DFS play when the Dubs second-round series begins.
Apr 28 - 6:47 PM

Shaun Livingston made 7-of-8 shots for 16 points during the Warriors' Game 5 victory, adding three boards, three assists and just one turnover in 28 minutes.

Livingston is a savvy defender whose offense is underrated -- he's not a 3-point threat, but he's a great passer who consistently uses his 6'7" frame to shoot over smaller guards from the paint out to 20 feet. Steph Curry (sprained knee) has an uncertain return date, so Livingston could earn at least a few more starts at PG in the second round of the playoffs.
Apr 28 - 1:25 AM

Shaun Livingston scored nine points on 4-of-8 shooting with nine assists, five rebounds and one turnover in 23 minutes in Sunday's 121-94 win over the Rockets.

He started the game on the bench with Stephen Curry back in the lineup, but the MVP left the game at halftime due to a knee injury and Livingston was back in the first unit for the second half. It sounds like Curry could miss some time due to his sprained knee and he will have an MRI on Monday, so Livingston could have some more starts coming his way. When Livingston started Game 2 and Game 3, he averaged 16.0 points, 4.5 assists, 3.5 boards and 2.5 steals, so he will be a solid option in DFS.
Apr 24 - 6:55 PM

Shaun Livingston is hoping to stay with the Warriors beyond this season.

"I want to stay here as long as I can," Livingston said. "It’s a unique and special situation. A lot of guys including myself, I want to be here for as long as I possibly can depending on the contract situation." The Warriors have a team option for the 2016-17 season, but Warriors GM Bob Meyers strongly hinted that the team will pick up the option. "It’s a good deal for us, and we see him in our future," Meyers said. The backup PG has thrived in two straight starts with 16 points in each outing, but he could be back on the bench for Game 4 on Sunday if Stephen Curry (ankle) is cleared.
Apr 22 - 11:02 AM

Shaun Livingston drew his second straight start on Thursday vs. the Rockets and looked great again, scoring 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting with five boards, three assists and three steals in 30 minutes.

Klay Thompson recently implied that Livingston is the best backup PG in the league, so he certainly made a strong argument tonight. Livingston also scored 16 points in Game 2 with two rebounds, six assists, and two steals, but it sounds like coach Steve Kerr is planning on having Stephen Curry (ankle) back for Game 4. If Curry plays, Livingston can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Apr 22 - 1:15 AM

Klay Thompson said Shaun Livingston is as good of a backup point guard as you can get.

Livingston scored 16 points to go with two rebounds, six assists, and two steals in a spot start for Stephen Curry (ankle) in Monday's Game 2 win over Houston and Thompson was impressed with his play. "I'm mesmerized by Shaun Livingston," Thompson said. "You can't ask for a better back-up point guard in this league." We'll have to wait and see if Curry is available for Game 3 on Thursday, but Livingston will again be in for big minutes if the reigning NBA MVP can't suit up.
Apr 19 - 10:50 AM

Shaun Livingston scored 16 points in a spot start on Monday against the Rockets, adding two rebounds, six assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

He made 7-of-9 from the field and killed the Rockets in the paint. Livingston was playing on the ball a lot more while he was really effective on his off-ball cuts. The Warriors might as well rest Stephen Curry (ankle) again on Thursday, so there might be minutes available for Livingston again.
