Report: Livingston’s spot with Warriors is safe

Golden State Warriors super sub Shaun Livingston will be back with the team next year.

According to Marc Spears of The Undefeated, the Dubs will keep the 6-foot-7 point guard for the last year of his deal. He’ll be paid $5.8 million for the 2016-17 season, according to sports contract database Spotrac.

Livingston was signed for the midlevel exception before the 2014-15 season. So his deal will look like a bargain compared to those players of his ilk will receive this offseason.

Keeping Livingston throws into question the status of Andre Iguodala and Andrew Bogut. The Warriors will have to find savings somewhere, and both players will likely be gone if the Dubs are able to win the Kevin Durant sweepstakes.

Everybody’s got jokes

Four players who were in the NBA Finals this year will join forces for Team USA in the summer.

Cleveland’s hero, Kyrie Irving, told Mike & Mike of ESPN on Tuesday that he doesn’t plan on taking it easy on Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes.

“There are three Warriors on the [Olympic] team, and I’m the champion, so I’ll be throwing it in their face a bit,” Irving said.
