One of the biggest question marks for the Warriors heading into free agency, Golden State has reached an agreement with backup point guard Shaun Livingston on a three-year $24 million deal, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN. The third year of the contract is only partially guaranteed according to ESPN’s Zach Lowe.

With Curry also reportedly agreeing to a “supermax,” five-year deal minutes beforehand, and Kevin Durant expected to re-sign to a deal slightly under the max, Andre Iguodala remains the only big Warrior free agent whose future with the team is still in doubt.
Livingston, 31, has been a cornerstone of the Warriors bench since being acquired in 2014, and has been a key cog in both NBA title winning teams. Livingston averaged 5.1 points, 2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 17.7 minutes per game in 2016-17. Livingston joins Patrick McCaw as the only reserve guards currently under contract with the Warriors for next season.
