The Charlotte Bobcats are close to acquiring Shaun Livingston to help address their hole at point guard, an informed source told the Observer Wednesday.

Livingston, 6-7, is a former lottery pick by the Los Angeles Clippers, who suffered a career-threatening knee injury several years ago while playing against the Bobcats. He turned pro out of high school, after signing to play for Duke.

Livingston has since played for Miami, Oklahoma City and most recently the Washington Wizards. He played 28 games for the Wizards last season -- 18 of them starts -- averaging 9.2 points and 4.5 assists.

Livingston would compete with D.J. Augustin for the starting job vacated by Raymond Felton, signed with the New York Knicks. The Bobcats will likely bring undrafted rookie Sherron Collins to training camp as a third option at the position.

Signing Livingston would likely preclude the team from other options, such as trading for Minnesota's Ramon Sessions or Indiana's T.J. Ford, at least for now.

Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports that the Bobcats are close to signing free agent PG Shaun Livingston.
Signing Livingston would appear to put any trade pursuits of Ramon Sessions and T.J. Ford on hold for now. Regardless, Charlotte looks like a good opportunity for Livingston, who would get a chance to compete with D.J. Augustin for the starting job. If he gets the gig, he would make an intriguing fantasy sleeper after averaging 15.5 points and 6.3 assists in eight April games last season.

can someone tell me the point of drafting dj augustine a couple years back if they were never going to give him a chance to play big minutes.

Great move.
This could be a sleeper signing. If the last month with Washington is an indication, then Charlotte may have taken care of their PG situation for years.

Imagine they drafted Brook Lopez instead. Amazing how many poor draft decisons this team has had.

Good for Shaun, glad his getting a nice opportunity. I'd like to see them give Augustin a chance to run the team but Shaun is a solid backup.
