After an impressive five year run with the Warriors, resulting in five trips to the NBA Finals and three championships, Livinsgton is 'determined to continue playing' per Wojnarowski and could provide a steadying hand off the bench and a strong locker room presence for a contending team.
Livingston appeared in 64 games off the bench last season, averaging 4.0 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 15.1 minutes per game.
Over his 17-year career, Livingston has played for 10 teams after being drafted no. 4 overall by the Los Angeles Clippers in 2004.
