Bobcats to Sign Shaun Livingston

Livingston will compete for Charlotte’s starting job. Livingston showed his prowess with the Wizards last April, averaging 15.5 points and 6.3 assists in that month. Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer: “The Charlotte Bobcats are close to acquiring Shaun Livingston to help address their hole at point guard, an informed source told the Observer Wednesday.”

    really hope he does well

    would love to see him do it big in Charlotte

  • http://slamonline.com JL

    yes! i was hoping he would sign with the lakers doing a ron harper thing (same bad knees), but any chance for him to start and shine would be awesome. now you have one of the tallest PGs and shortest PG on one team. he is the tallest (officially listed as) PG in the league right now right?

  • rich

  • rainman10

    BETCATS where ya at?

    I was happy for him balling out in Washington last season. He even exploded for a dunk or two. But everytime he went up for a layup, I got nervous.

  • unrel

    and sessions might be at charlotte?.. livingston looked good last year.. and it appears he looks healthy.. i knew mj was working on something that would explain pulling the rug from under the raps..

  • ConeyIslander

    Happy for the kid, When i saw his injury I thought they would have just cut his leg off and call it a day. :o X

  • Diesel

    I was hoping Chicago would pick him up as a back up for Rose.

    BETCATS is excited about this, but is gonna lose his sh*t if Sessions goes over to the Cats. Not too shabby.

  • ab_40

    I like this move I wish him the best hope he get’s the job. He’d also be great in a backup role to jackson and augistin.

    Good move. Livingston is gona destroy Dj for that starting job.

  • Drew

    He was killing it for the Wiz towards the end of last season. I’m surprised not more teams were trying to snatch him up sooner. He may never be as explosive as he was pre-injury, but he showed the last few months that he can still put up impressive stats. I think if Charlotte is willing to give him more quality minutes, he can really flourish and get back to a high level. Best of luck to him for real!

    Home team trying to improve. Now all we need is better looking uniforms.

  • WangChung

    Nice. This team can definitely contend for a playoff spot (7/8), and look to be in much better shape than the tragedy that is the Raptors.

    Come on shaun we’re pulling for you

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    I like Shaun. But if we get Sessions it will be ________ing time.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    Shaun will most likely be our starter if we dont get Sessions. LB loves big point guards. It would only be suiting that Shaun gets his career back on track with the team he was playing against when it almost ended.

  • The Philosopher

    I pull for Shaun Livingston more than I pull for anyone else in The League.

  • Sergio

    Stay Healthy Shaun!

  • underdog

    I can’t believe the Wizards didn’t resign him.

  • Wat Misaka

    ^^^I can cause Gilbert will be coming off the bench by All-Star game. Unless he plays the 2.

  • http://www.slamonline melvin ely

    most improved player of the year next season

  • http://gmail dirty frank

    Wishing for a strong & healthy season

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    best of luck to him, hes a baller. Add as mutch muscle to that knee as possible Shawn, to protect as mutch as possible.

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    well im kinda repeating myself, and BetCats, Sessions is no reason to be THAT HAPPY…BUT Matt Caroll and Nejera´s AWFUL CONTRACTS on the other hand…you cut MJ too mutch slack cause hes the GOAT

  • http://www.hufsf.com Waylonakolipse

    Shaun was gonna blow up before his knee blew up. That hard work for you, hope he can finish up well.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    No, Najera is going to be in our rotation/will become an expiring after this season ends and Carrol is a fan favorite who is motivated as hell to play for us. We only had to spend 4 extra million to get them, and we got Erica’s contract. I am happy with the move. Sessions is my 3rd favorite player after Wallace and Durant and if he came to my favorite team it would be time to _______ every single woman in a 100 mile radius.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Nice! Let him start!

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    we agree to desagree..and lol good one Cats

  • severus

    Glad he’s getting another chance

  • JoeMaMa

    Guess now that they have a tall, heady playmaker, my Raptors can get Diaw? Hmmm, maybe now, MJ?

  • http://sevendeu2u.wordpress.com/ Seven Duece

    he played real well for them last year, he’s an upgrade over Felton for sure.

  • gani
