Warriors Guard Shaun Livingston Contemplating Retiring at End of Season

Enjoy watching Shaun Livingston play basketball while you can.

The Warriors guard is contemplating retiring at the end of the season, we learned through his sitdown interview with Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

In the summer of 2017, Livingston signed a three-year contract worth $24 million. While the final season could be worth just under $7.7 million, only $2 million is guaranteed.

If the Warriors elect to part ways with Livingston (they have until June 30 to make a decision), the 33-year old (he will turn 34 in September) might choose to hang 'em up.

"Going to another organization at this point? It doesn't sound like the greatest thing to do," Livingston told The Athletic. "It would just have to be somewhere, to me, that made sense. Somewhere warm, somewhere close, that maybe the family would want to be in. But that's a conversation for the summer.

The No. 4 overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft is averaging 4.1 points this season in 15.3 minutes per contest. He has come on strong as of late, shooting 80 percent from the field over his last eight appearances.

So why is he thinking this might be it?

"It's just all the signs on the wall," he answered. "And just more so from a physical standpoint ... this year, I've struggled with injuries more than any other year I've been on the Warriors ... dealing with my knee. Just showing up to the game and my knee is, like, softball(-sized) swollen."

And in case you are wondering, Livingston didn't just start pondering life after basketball recently.

"Uhhh … training camp," he revealed.

Even though the career is coming to a close soon, Livingston can still do stuff like this:
