Livingston had agreed to move his contract guarantee date back from June 30 to July 10 to allow the Warriors time to examine the market.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski cited sources in reporting Tuesday that the Warriors will waive Livingston.

The 33-year-old was due to make $7.7 million this season, with $2 million of that guaranteed.

Trump's Approval Highest Ever as President!
Last year, the same poll found Trump's approval rating at 39% or five points below his rating in the June 28-July 1 survey. Meanwhile, Biden topped the president by 14 points and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg led Trump by 4 points.

While Livingston was reportedly strongly considering retirement, Wojnarowski reported that Livingston is "determined to continue playing".

Livingston, who will be 34 before the start of next season, joins a free-agent market that is full of contending teams searching for championship-hardened veterans to fortify benches.

Drafted by the Clippers with the No. 4 overall pick in 2004, Livingston spent three years in Los Angeles before suffering a debilitating knee injury in 2007. In doing so, the club will remain slightly under the $138.9 million tax apron. Whether it's been the loss of Kevin Durant or a number of other longtime contributors, or the addition of D'Angelo Russell, the Warriors are going to look a whole lot different by the time the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season tips off later this year.
