If Durant agrees to sign, that would mean someone will have to be traded or cut from the Warriors' record-breaking 73-win team.
T that player will not be lanky guard, Shaun Livingston.
The Warriors have decided to pick up Livingston’s team option for the 2016-17 season at $5.7 million. Considering that the NBA's cap is rising next season for all teams, picking up the team option is a huge bargain for a player of Livingston's quality.
The former Clipper averaged 8.2 points and 3.3 assists in 24 minutes per game this season, always presenting a mismatch at the point guard position with his 6'7″ frame.
He also told ESPN that he would love to continue his career in Golden State, so this decision is just the good news he was waiting to hear.
I would love to be back with Warriors next year and feel there is something special cultivating with the organization. The time spent there has allowed me the platform to see the ingredients of winning and the importance of culture.
