Default Livingston Released By Miami

MIAMI - The Shaun Livingston comeback is over. At least for now. At least with the Miami Heat.

Livingston was informed of his release after Monday night's 91-84 loss to the San Antonio Spurs at AmericanAirlines Arena, with the team expected to make a formal announcement later this morning.

The contract Livingston signed with the Heat guaranteed only $370,000 for this season, a figure that keeps the team below the punitive dollar-for-dollar luxury tax on excessive payrolls.

With all NBA contracts becoming guaranteed for the season by week's end, the Heat had to make a decision on Livingston in advance of its upcoming seven-game trip. Livingston's contract also called for a partial contract guarantee for next season, at the Heat's option.,6224851.story

Since we do need a PG, and the year is going nowhere, we should ink him. If Shaun is to ever fully recover, his height will offset the fact that EJ is generally short for a 2guard, and balance our back court.

Do it Mike!
