Shaun Livingston Net Worth $10 Million

Shaun Livingston started playing basketball while at high school, leading his Concordia Lutheran Grade School to the LSA state titles in 1999 and 2000. He later moved to Richwoods High School and Peoria Central High School, where he was named Illinois Mr. Basketball in 2004 thanks to his achievements.

Livingston decided to skip college and go straight to the NBA, and entered the 2004 Draft,, and the Los Angeles Clippers selected him the 4th pick overall. In the beginning, Livingston played both point guard and shooting guard positions due to his large wingspan and height (2.11m). He and Sam Cassell played in the backfield for the Clippers, and Livingston averaged 7.4 points, 5.0 assists, and 3.0 rebounds per game in his 30 matches.

In the 2005-06 season, Livingston appeared in 61 games, averaging 5.8 points, 4.5 assists, and 3.0 rebounds per outing. The next year, Shaun averaged a career-high in all three major categories; he had 9.3 points, 5.1 assists, and 3.4 rebounds in 29.8 minutes per game. He also recorded a career-high 14 assists in the match against the Golden State Warriors in February 2007. Only three days after that achievement, Livingston suffered a serious knee injury, tearing the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and the lateral meniscus. He was even told that his leg could be amputated, but he successfully recovered after spending months on rehabilitation.

Shaun missed the entire 2007-08 season, and then signed with the Miami Heat after his previous contract with the Clippers expired. However, he was still not ready for playing basketball as he appeared in just four games for the Heat before being sent to the Oklahoma City Thunder in March 2009. He didn’t stay in OKC for long, as after 18 games he was waived, and then signed a contract with the Washington Wizards in February 2010. Livingston became a free agent once again, but the Charlotte Bobcats signed him to a two-year deal for $7 million.

Shaun failed to settle down in the next couple of season as he changed three teams: Milwaukee, Washington, and Cleveland, before signing with the Brooklyn Nets in July 2013. He played a significant role in the team’s playoff push, averaging 9.7 points, 3.3 assists, and 3.2 rebounds in 12 postseason games. The Golden State Warriors bought him in July 2014 on a three-year deal worth $16 million, with the idea of him serving as Steph Curry’s backup, and he was one of the top performers off the bench in the season that saw the Warriors claim the NBA title.

Last year, he played in 78 regular season games and also in 24 playoff matches, but his Warriors lost the title to Cleveland Cavaliers even with a 3-1 lead in the finals. They became the first team that lost the series after being up 3–1.

Regarding his personal life, Shaun Livingston is a Lutheran Christiana and a big philanthropist, donating the sum of $1 million to his former Concordia Lutheran School, in Peoria, Illinois. Other aspects of his life remain unknown to the media.
