According to a report by Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Bay Area, Shaun Livingston will leave the Golden State Warriors. Johnson mentioned that the former Warriors guard served as Golden State’s head of player affairs and engagement for the previous three years. According to Johnson, Livingston made the decision to go away in order to spend more time with his family.
The Warriors have already lost Bob Myers this summer, so this is yet another significant blow for them. Livingston was one of the crucial players for the Warriors who isn’t well-known or covered, which is a problem for NBA teams. Livingston played a significant role in three Warriors championships during his five seasons with the team, the last three of which he spent in the front office.
Livingston will no longer reside in the Bay Area as he enters this next phase of his life, Johnson stated in his report. Despite the loss, Livingston will always be a vital part of the Warriors’ team and someone who will be remembered for his services both on and off the court.
It is not yet known how the Warriors intend to fill Livingston’s absence, whether they will do so internally like they did when they promoted Mike Dunleavy Jr. to fill Bob Myers’ previous role, or externally.
