Golden State has brought back Shaun Livingston as part of its front office, the longtime Warrior told The Athletic.
Livingston said his title is director of player affairs and engagement, making him the highest-ranking Black person in the team’s front office since 2008 when Mitch Richmond was director of player personnel.
Leandro Barbosa retired Monday and said he’s joining the organization as a “player mentor coach.”
Livingston, 35, retired in 2019 after a 14-year career, the last five coming with the Warriors. He won three titles with Golden State.
In 367 regular-season games (15 starts) with Golden State, Livingston averaged 5.4 points and 2.4 assists per game, just shy of his career averages of 6.3 points and 3.0 rebounds.
The Los Angeles Clippers made Livingston, a high school senior at the time, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft.
