Shaun Patrick Livingston (born September 11, 1985) is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association (NBA). In 2004, Livingston decided not to attend college and entered the 2004 NBA draft. He was selected with the 4th overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers. In a game 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 has previously 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 D-League.
On July 11, 2014, Livingston signed with the Golden State Warriors to a reported three-year, $16 million contract. On August 15, 2014, the Warriors announced that Livingston would miss 6–8 weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on his right big toe. He returned in early 2015 and served as a key player off the bench for the Warriors in their run to the 2015 NBA championship.
