The Dubs are getting the gang back together! The first announcement we received yesterday (Monday, September 14) was from Leandro Barbosa on his Instagram when he announced that he was returning to the Golden State Warriors as a part of Steve’s Kerr coaching staff!
Now, the Warriors have another dynasty member heading back to the bay!
Marcus Thompson of The Athletics reported that Shaun Livingston has also signed a contract to join the Warriors staff as director, players affair, and engagement.
Thompson reported that,
"After a year off, Livingston is ready for the next phase. The natural move would have been coaching. A point guard all his life, cerebral and composed, Livingston has the pedigree for it. Most expected that to be his post-career move. The Warriors’ front office even encouraged it. Steve Kerr would very likely find a spot for Livingston on the bench.
But during one of his conversations with Bob Myers, Livingston declared his preference for the front office. Myers was elated about the revelation and spent the next couple of years recruiting Livingston, working to keep his talent in house when Livingston hung up his Nikes."
The Golden State Warriors' organization continues to repay their players after retirement, proving their strength in numbers on and off the court. Next season should definitely be one for Dub Nation to look forward to!
