Warriors officially sign guard Shaun Livingston

 

The Associated Press

The Golden State Warriors have signed guard Shaun Livingston to the contract agreed to last week.

The Warriors announced Livingston's signing Friday. The deal is worth three years and about $16 million using Golden State's full mid-level exception, which starts around $5.3 million next season.

The Warriors are hoping Livingston can provide some stability as a backup point guard behind Stephen Curry. The 28-year-old Livingston averaged 8.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists with the Brooklyn Nets last season.

Golden State was unable to complete a sign-and-trade for Livingston — or any other free agent — before their $9.8 million traded-player exception expired Thursday night. That would have freed up more space under the NBA's complicated salary cap system.
