Because the Warriors and the Nets are the first After signing, the salary of the two teams next season cannot exceed the hard salary cap-138.9 million. The Warriors' salary has always been above the salary cap, even if the deal is gone, Iguodala still can't get below the salary cap. So, still cutThe team's champion Livingston. Livingston had $7.7 million in salary next season, but only $2 million of that was guaranteed. To lay off him, he will only need to pay him a guaranteed salary of 2 million. The Warriors will use extended clauses to lay off Leven, in three years, and he will occupy the Warriors' salary space of 666,000 per year for the next three years.
As a result, the Warriors still have 219,000 room to the hard salary cap (ie, the local tyrant line Apron), successfully meeting the requirements of the rules. The Warriors currently have 1.7 million middle-class exceptions, but due to the existence of a hard salary cap, they can no longer use this exception.
The Warriors fans should all know Livingston, the firepower above the bench, and the unsolvable mid-range shot is also giving him a footholdNBA. But few people know about Livingston's past. This is a person who was hoped high, but was ruined by injuries, and then chased after the self, a true warrior, little by little.
Sean Livingston in the first round of the 2004 NBA DraftNo. 4 was selected by the Los Angeles Clippers, and the very good CIC and the passing vision of the court also gave him the title of "Little Prince of CIC" and "Skinny Magician". The rookie averaged 7.4 points, 4.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds in the first three seasons. Therefore, the Clippers also have high hopes for Livingston, hoping to slowly cultivate. But maybe Tian is jealous of talents? In the third season, the Clippers injured a knee and a comminuted fracture of his left knee during the game between the Clippers and the Bobcats (Today's Hornets)-this is one of the most serious injuries in basketball history. The video of his injury went viral on the Internet for a time, and that injury was called one of the most terrifying injury situations in NBA history.
Let’s try the guts
Because of this serious injury, the Clippers gave him up and cut him off in the 08 season. Afterwards, Livingston was tossed to each team in the recovery, the Heat, the Grizzlies , Thunder, Wizards, Bobcats, Bucks, Rockets, Cavaliers, Nets. Livingston was either cut or on the way to being cut during that period. Almost after the deal happened, the team that got him announced his cut. Due to injury issues, playing time is not much, scoring even more. It is almost on the verge of elimination in the NBA, because of the serious injury, many people guessed that he has lost the competition.Fighting for the strength of the NBA is very likely to retire. Livingston is like Xiaoqiang who can't be beaten, constantly being abandoned and constantly trying. Even if there is a little chance, Livingston will try to catch him.
Finally, the painstaking effort paid off, in fact, maybeIt is more appropriate to get to the "Coach Ansi" who belongs to Livingston. In the 09-10 season, Livingston, who was on the fringe of the NBA, received a 10-day short contract from the Wizards. At that time, the Wizards were also in the rebuilding period. Livingston soon had the opportunity to play and performed well. Livingston got his second 10-day short contract. He averaged 4.9 points and 3.3 assists in 15.5 minutes per game. On March 20, 2010, the Wizards renewed their contract to the end of the Livingston season. The Wizards at the time were actually in the bad stage, but the team coach was very optimistic about Livingston's play, as long as he opened up space for him to give his opponent a blow. So the team's head coach Philip Sanders specially designed tactical moves for him to open up space for him and allow Livingston to exert his greatest strength. In order not to make him too tired, Sanders letThe team's shooting guard Randy Foye came to complete the task of dribbling the ball for him. Next, the command of the team's half-court offense was returned to Livingston. In his eighth game, Livingston scored 18 points and 8 assists against the Magic, and Sanders also allowed him to play the entire season as a starter. In the first 18 games, Livingston averaged 11.2 points and 4.9 assists. Later, Livingston expressed his gratitude to the then coach Philip Sanders in many interviews.
God's Will Make People
Because of last season's excellent performance, Livingston also returned to the perspective of reinforcement of the NBA teams. In the summer of 2010, Sean Livingston signed the Charlotte Bobcats with 7 million in 2 years. Perhaps God’s will to make someone and leave Philip Sanders. Livingston was actually used by the team as a scorer, but there was no coach to arrange the running tactics for him, so that he could find a way to solve the battle. Livingston in the recovery period, it is difficult to use his footsteps to get rid of the defender. So Livingston's performance on the court plummeted, Once again marginalized by the team. So he was traded by the team, and unfortunately, in November 2012, the Wizards signed Livingston again. It's a coincidence that Livingston once again returned to his recovered team. Unfortunately, the team coach is no longer Philip Sanders. The Wizards fired Philip Sanders in early 2012. Livingston also performed mediocre as other teams, averaging only 3 points per game, and the Wizards also waived him.
On July 12, 2013, the Brooklyn Nets A basic salary contract signed Livingston. Livingston also received a lot of playing time, averaging 26 minutes per game, 8.3 points, 3.2 assists and 3.2 rebounds. During 12 playoff games, Livingston Ston averaged 9.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. His mid-range shooting performance within the three-point line also made all fans shine. It also made the Warriors at the time look at him. In July 2014, Sean Livingston and the Golden State Warriors reached an agreement, and the two sides signed a three-year, $16 million contract. Livingston also lived up to the Warriors’ expectations. As a backup Rockman, he often performed brilliantly and remained stable.The shot also gave him a place in the team. In the five seasons of the Warriors, the shooting percentage has not been less than 50%. Although he has not scored many points but has suffered such a serious injury, he can perfectly fit the dead five play style. The speed on the field is not slow, and the rest of the team He often runs excellent shooting points for him. In five seasons, the Warriors won three championships.
So devastated by injuriesDestroyed but did not give up, was abandoned by the team but still persisted. In the face of opportunity, he did not carry a trace, and in the face of failure, he still insisted on running forward. Finally met the self before, and finally surpassed the high hoped self, and used his strength to survive tenaciously in this world of the weak and the strong. Now waived by the Warriors, most guesses that Livingston will retire. But according to Woshen reports, Livingston decided to continue playing in the NBA. look forward!
