No. 2 Shaun Livingston, G/F, Golden State Warriors

Before becoming a vital cog of the Golden State Warriors dynasty, Shaun Livingston had two separate stints in Washington, first in 2010 and then again in 2012. When all was said and done, he started in 22 of 43 games that he played in for the Wizards, putting up an average of 7 points, 3 rebounds, and nearly 4 assists per game. After suffering a gruesome knee injury earlier in his career, Washington was one of many stops on his comeback tour that has since culminated in three rings (and counting) with the Warriors.

Livingston has been an essential part of the Golden State’s bench over the past five years. Even though his numbers won’t wow anyone, he’s incredibly consistent and makes little to no mistakes when he’s on floor. Somewhat ironically, on a team that revolutionized the three-point shot, Livingston relies exclusively on scoring inside the arc and does some spectacularly, shooting 52 percent from the field.

On the Wizards, Livingston would be a hardworking, disciplined wing who does what is asked of him and is well-liked by his teammates. Sensing a theme here? On top of the composed professionalism on and off the court, Livingston would also bring championship pedigree to a team that severely needs it.
