It seems the endless tweets, posts and wishes of increased stability at the point guard position finally funneled into the Wizards front office. Free agent Shaun Livingston can now put a halt to the unemployment checks and begin his hunt for real estate in the DC metro area as the Washington Wizards have announced their acquisition of the oft-traveling veteran. It’s fair to assume the move may have been expedited thanks in great part to the crap show Jannero Pargo put up last night in Dallas. With the Livingston signing, Pargo will now be the one polishing his resume after the Wizards waived the struggling guard. At least now I won't have to deal with the irksome task of making sure his name is spelled right. Is it two N's or two R's? Pargo’s departure from DC won’t be a memorable one for him nor the fans who often scrutinized him throughout his short stint with the team. Livingston will be making his second career appearance in a Wizard uniform. He played 26 games in DC back in the 2009-10 season before signing with the Charlotte Bobcats. He last played with the Houston Rockets before being released last month for financial reasons. In the Wizards press release, GM Ernie Grunfeld stated: “We are obviously familiar with what Shaun brings both on and off the court based on his previous time here and we’re confident that he will be a positive addition to our team. “His size and playmaking ability will give us more flexibility in the backcourt.” For his career, Livingston averages 7.3 points, 2.5 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 1 steal per game.
