I think we all seen had bad he injured his leg but since then he's being doing some rehad and the doctors gave him the green light to play basketball again...so I was wondering how many of you would take a chance on him?

Not for another year, its going to take a lot more time for his Knee to endure playing consecutive minutes again. Also other Pg's will now make i harder for him to defend since his Knee won't allow him to cut or jab straight while defending. Another year and he will be good I think.

Why do promising Pg get HARD injuries this often lately? Livingston, Jay Williams, Penny Hardaway, Terrell Brandon, Bobby Hurley....

I think this injury was the most unfortunate because it was the freakiest injury i've ever seen on the basketball court....the others were mostly off the court or just nagging injuries....this was just a nightmare of an injury....

In our current situation(Dubs) I would not sign Livingston because we need a player who can play now.

I'd rather have CJ Watson and Anthony Morrow. Healthy players who can contribute.

The fact that nobody has signed him tells you something about his current health status.

I heard he is commanding a full Mle and 5 years, that may actually be the reason no one wants to jump on him.

2010 is too close.

He could be a steel for some contender if he is not injured, for example Rockets could really use him, but i dont know if they have Mle, or if they would use since they need to save to Resign Artest at years end.

No.... too much of a project IMO. Even though the warriors recently had a workout for him :sigh:

I'd sign him in a heart beat. He is still only 22 years old and has a lot of talent. He seems like the perfect back court teammate for a combo guard. If Darius Miles is still getting chances, people should be flocking at Shaun Livingston to give him another chance.

Did you just compare Livingston to Miles?? O man.... poor Livingston didn't deserve that. :p

I as a Lakers would try to get him if he accepted the Bae or smoething close to that.

Jsut for insurenca, Fisher is aging and Farmar in my eyes is not goign to become a starter.

Not straight to the starting lineup but for sure he deserves a chance.

For the right price, yes.

As a bench guy for cheap sure, but anything above that would have to be proven to justify first.

For the full MLE? Mmmm! Naah! Half maybe.

But to give him a chance to prove himself? Hell yeah! Got a pen!

I would simply because at this point I could get him on the cheap. Maybe offer him $5m over 2 years or $7m over three. His injury was HORRIBLE but how many players in the league have had major surgeries and are currently playing and playing well... Stoudemire, K-Mart, Big Z... Stoudemire has bounced back very well so far. It is amazing what they can do now for injuries and so for a small cost you might end up with a very nice point guard.

if he's demanding 5/5 years than no...but 4 a smaller contract i wouldn't mind

Why not. He would get a minimum contract and not play many minutes until he was ready. He would get a lot of practice time against your team and get his game back to normal. I would take him for 750 thousand bucks to sit on my bench and have the possibility of playing in the future rather than paying Mateen Cleaves or some bum to wave a towel for 82 games.

i'm sure the jazz would if they had an open roster spot.

For the min yep. No team should give him the full MLE though. That's how you go into Isiah Thomas cap hell.

mateen cleaves... what is he up too?

He was not so bad, not worse than Kevin Ollie who seems to always find where to stand.

Yes, but not as a starter

Utah can use him.. Him and Dwill WOW!!!! We have Knight.. I saw that injury and I was shocked!!! NASTY!!! If he comes back to start it'll be a miracle!

I'm pretty sure Shaun isn't even playing 5 on 5 yet. I was upset Clippers didn't re-sign and give him another chance... until we grabbed whats now the best back up point guard in the NBA, Jason Williams.

MiamiHeat
09-05-2008, 02:51 PM
For the right price, yes.

:nod:
He wouldn't be a starter, he would be a nice PG backup
he has to prove that he is healthy and good enough to start

Miles is playing for cheap (of course if you don't count what Portland's paying him). If Livingston would accept a similar contract I bet he would be signed by now. For the full MLE? No way, that is not happening. Either Livingston or his agent needs to come back to earth. He should just bite the bullet and sign a one-year deal and if he plays well then he can get his big contract next season.

I agree. Sign him for cheap and if he does well, great and if he sucks, at least you didn't overpay him and it's not a big loss.

For a future backup I would give it a look. Some players recover better than others. Depending on how bad he wants to come back depending on my teams point guard situation.

Penny Hardaway was a point forward.
