Steve Kerr Rumors

Livingston currently is a free agent, but many assume the veteran guard will call it a career and hang up his sneakers. Whenever Livingston decides he’s done, Kerr wouldn’t mind seeing him around the Warriors in some capacity. “He’s somebody I’m hoping can be involved with our organization for many years to come,” Kerr said. “That would be the plan if we can pull it off, but he’s got to get away right now and get some freedom, enjoy his family before he figures out what’s next.”
While Livingston’s exit from the Bay was forecasted for quite some time, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t hard for head coach Steve Kerr to say goodbye to one of the instrumental players of the Warriors dynasty. “It’s something we anticipated because of his age, his contract situation,” Kerr told LetsGoWarriors at Team USA’s practice in LA. “I was prepared for that one, but it’s still a huge loss from a leadership standpoint. Shaun is one of those people that you just want to be with in any circumstance. He’s smart, funny and humble. He’s just a great human being. He also happens to be a hell of a basketball player and a good teammate. I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed my five years with Shaun.”
“I’m devastated for DeMarcus,” said Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who is serving as a Team USA assistant under national team coach Gregg Popovich. “It’s been a couple years of hell for DeMarcus with the injuries, first the Achilles and then last year in the playoffs with the quad. I was really hoping that this would be a year for him upcoming with the Lakers where he could get healthy, get his rhythm, get his conditioning and really start his comeback. We’re all crushed for him, everybody in this gym, all these fellow players and coaches. This is a small community. Everybody’s been talking about it. We’ve all reached out to him. We all just feel terrible for him.
