Shaun Livingston Signs with Miami Heat

Lucas RifkinContributor IOctober 2, 2008

Reports are coming out of South Florida that the Miami Heat have won the Shaun Livingston sweepstakes.

The ex-Clipper guard met with the Heat on Friday, where a 2-year contract was signed.

Livingston's agent, Henry Thomas, said earlier this week that Shaun was "leaning toward Miami."

With little space in salary cap, look for the Heat to make a trade deal somewhere down the line to dump the contracts of Guards Daequon Cook, Dorrell Wright, or possibly Marcus Banks. They have all been names mentioned that may be gone.

A former No. 4 overall selection in the 2004 NBA Draft, the 6-foot-7 guard was on his way to stardom with the Clippers before suffering a gruesome season-ending knee injury.

The question still remains, can he bounce back from such a devastating injury? Time will tell with the Miami Heat.
