Brooklyn Nets reach out to Shaun Livingston, reports Tim Bontemps

USA TODAY Sports

Shaun Livingston, once seen as a potential superstar before facing injury after injury, could be the Nets top candidate for back-up point guard.

Tim Bontemps reports that the Nets have "reached out" to Livingston, a 6'7", 175 pounder , as a replacement for C.J. Watson.

As a possible replacement for Watson, the Nets have reached out to free agent point guard Shaun Livingston, according to a source. Livingston, the fourth overall pick in the draft by the Clippers back in 2004, has played for eight teams in his career, including the Wizards and Cavaliers last season.

Livingston, now 27, is more of a distributor than a shooter, not making a single three-pointer last season. He has been mentioned as a candidate, along with the Jazz's Jamaal Tinsley and the Raptors' Sebastian Telfair, both Brooklynites. Tinsley is seen as the more likely of the two.

In 66 games with the Wizards and Cavaliers, Livingston averaged 7.2 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game while shooting 50.2 percent from the floor.
