Shaun Livingston Announces Retirement From NBA

Former Golden State Warriors Guard Shaun Livingston has announced his retirement at the age of 34.

Livingston was waived by the Golden State Warriors on July 10.

Livingston was the fourth overall pick in 2004 by the Los Angeles Clippers and was one of the NBA’s most promising young point guards before suffering a devastating left leg injury.

Livingston worked his way back over several years and became a key part of the Warriors’ run of three championships and five Finals appearances. 

Livingston entered the league directly out of high school after he was selected in the first round of the 2004 NBA draft by the Los Angeles Clippers with the fourth overall pick. In 2007, Livingston suffered a debilitating knee injury that damaged almost every part of his left knee, and it took him about a year and a half to return to action. Livingston later played for the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, Washington Wizards, Charlotte Bobcats, Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Brooklyn Nets. He has also spent time with the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League. He is a three-time NBA champion, winning all three with the Golden State Warriors in 2015, 2017, and 2018. Livingston retired from the NBA on September 13, 2019.
