The Cavs’ most prominent free agents are guards Wayne Ellington and Shaun Livingston and center Marreese Speights. The Cavs would like to sign Ellington. That means presenting him a qualifying offer of $3 million. It’s not as easy with Speights. It appears as if they hope he opts out of his deal. He might not fit their culture. Livingston emerged as a top-notch backup point — not quite as good as Golden State’s Jarrett Jack — but still a quality guard, nonetheless. He’ll likely ask for $3 million or $4 million, and settle for something like $2 million or $2.5 million, a source said. Morning Journal

Livingston has made the best of a heartbreaking situation, remaining relevant despite the star label quickly fading following the injury. He can relate to Ware, having to deal with looks of sympathy and compassion and murmurs of what might have been if his leg had not collapsed. “Just the passion to play the game is what kept me going,” he said. “If you’re passionate about something and you work hard for it, even though the face of adversity. I am a man of faith and faith is not always supposed to happen and what you see, sometimes it’s just walking that path. Everybody has their own path and I believe everything happens for a reason and you kind of just rock with it.” Boston Globe

He has walked the road Ware is about to embark, an arduous rehabilitation filled with self doubt, constant visions of that night, and questions about your durability and desire. “I would say stay away from the public’s opinion,” Livingston said when asked what advice he would offer Ware. “Just stay strong with his faith and focus on the positives. “Obviously everything is going to be about what he can’t do, his limitations and all that. He has to focus on the positives, moving forward. That’s the way he’s going to make progress.” Boston Globe
