In a round-up of impending free agency decisions, Sam Amick of USA Today suggests that the Nets will face competition for Shaun Livingston from the Sacramento Kings, who may have a front court of DeMarcus Cousins, Josh Smith and Rudy Gay, but no real point guard.

The Kings are on the lookout for a starting point guard, and one name to keep an eye on is the Brooklyn Nets' Shaun Livingston. The 28-year-old free-agent-to-be whose career looked all but over in 2007 when he had a devastating leg injury while with the Los Angeles Clippers had his best season yet in 2014-15, helping the Nets turn their season around when he started in place of the injured Deron Williams and remaining a vital part of their program even after he returned.

Previously, there have been reports that the Timberwolves might be interested in Livingston. He and GM/coach Flip Saunders have a relationship going back to his time in Washington. Other reports indicated that the Clippers or the Heat could have interest.
