The Golden State Warriors are heading into the 2019-2020 NBA season by parting ways with another key cog in Shaun Livingston, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. On Wednesday (Philippine time) Wojnarowski reported that Livingston, 33, is still guaranteed $2 million of his $7.7 million salary in 2019.

However, the Warriors will stretch out such salary over three years, according to Warriors writer Anthony Slater of the Athletic. Livingston is now a free agent.

Golden State acquired Livingston from free agency in 2014, and the 6-foot-7 guard proved to be instrumental for the Dubs as he became a solid veteran presence and contributor off the bench, helping Golden State win three of their five straight Finals appearances.

Last season, Livingston put up 4.0 points on 51.9 percent shooting from the field on top of 1.8 assists and 1.8 rebounds.

The fourth overall pick of the 2004 NBA Draft was just one of the seven players whom the Warriors parted with this offseason either via trade or free agency. Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, Jordan Bell, Damian Jones, DeMarcus Cousins, and Quin Cook were the other six players.
