Livingston Joins the Sonics
by: Mike Schmidt - D-League, NCAA Scout
April 10, 2007
Randy Livingston A Sonic

Point guard Randy Livingston has been signed for the rest of the season by the Seattle Supersonics. In 46 appearances with the Idaho Stampede this season, the veteran guard averaged 12.3 points, 10.6 assists, and 4.7 rebounds per game. Livingston will be the 21st call-up of the season, and the second point guard to from the D-League to accomplish the feat over the past week.

A 32 year old out of LSU, Livingston has a great deal of experience as both an NBA and a minor league player. Before playing with the Idaho Stampede this season the D-League, he had played in both the International Basketball League and the Continental Basketball Association. This will be Livingston’s second career stint with the Sonics, his first coming in the 2001-2002 season. He finished last season with the Chicago Bulls, and has also played for the Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks, Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, and the Utah Jazz in his career which dates back to the 1996-1997 season.

At the start of the D-League season, Livingston was offered a coaching job with the Stampede, but he instead opted to try and make it back to the NBA one last time. He was noted for his veteran leadership on the court in Idaho, as well as high assist numbers. Currently, Livingston is tied with Clippers guard Will Conroy for the D-League lead in assists.

With Seattle, Randy Livingston becomes the second healthy point guard on the roster, with Luke Ridnour and Earl Watson both out for the rest of the season with ankle sprains. Livingston may lack the ideal physical tools to play in the NBA at this point in his career, but his knowledge of the game and leadership will be valuable to the younger players on the team. The only other healthy point guard on Seattle’s roster, Mike Wilks, also spent time in the D-League during the 2002-2003 season.
