Jerry West on Shaun Livingston: “Honestly, I think we got one of the best offseason acquisitions there was in Shaun Livingston. He’s a terrific player. He’s going to play all over the place, he can defend, he has an incredible mind to play the game. He’s still young. People say he doesn’t shoot the ball well, but he shot better than 80 percent from the free-throw line. … They started winning in Brooklyn when they started playing him last year. We really think he’s going to be a tremendous addition for us. … I saw USA Today said we have the best backcourt, and I truly believe that. I think we’ve really enhanced it by bringing (Livingston) on board. … I’ve had two or three people call me personally and say they wanted him. … He’s our best playmaker. When you watch him, he’s pretty to watch. He’s such a great ball-handler, with his size, he will help everyone.” San Francisco Chronicle
Warriors reserve guard Shaun Livingston has said he’s ahead of schedule with his recovery from offseason toe surgery, but coach Steve Kerr still expects him to miss the start of the season. That’s because Livingston, who remains in a walking boot, will need time to get back into game shape after a lengthy time away from the court, according to Kerr. The 29-year-old originally sprained his right big toe in April and played through it in the playoffs. “That was back in May, and (he) has not really been running on the floor since,” Kerr told KNBR on Thursday. “So he’s doing much better. The toe is healed. But he needs a few weeks on the court running and getting his conditioning and his strength and his timing before he’s really ready to get into a game. So I anticipate he’s going to miss a couple of weeks of the regular season, but we’ll see how it goes.” Contra Costa Times
Shaun Livingston: I know people are in shock from Paul George's injury. He will be able to bounce back bc he has a warrior mentality. I said the same about Derrick Rose. They both have youth on their side and sometimes these injuries can make you a stronger individual than before. It forces your mind to will the body to a place it hasn't experienced! I believe in Paul George and his recovery back to the top! 100 Twitter
The Wolves have also expressed interest in free agents Kris Humphries, Trevor Booker, Steve Blake, and did so with Shaun Livingston before he signed a 3-year deal with Golden State, according to sources. 1500 ESPN
