The Heat Sign Livingston

Pat Riley gets a big point guard with a lot to prove in Shaun Livingston finally back after being sidelined the entire 07 – 08 season after a Joe Theismann like injury.

“After days of fending off reports that a signing was imminent, the Heat agreed to terms with the 23-year-old free agent on a two-year contract.Terms were not released, but the salary is below the $1.9 million lower-level salary-cap exception the Heat has remaining, with no option year included in the package.

Three days after Heat President Pat Riley insisted the potential addition of Livingston was a “dead issue,” Riley added the type of tall ballhandler he has coveted since his days guiding Magic Johnson with the Lakers.”
