It was a bit hidden in Amick's post yesterday on Beno but I'm surprised there hasn't been more interest in the follwoing line:
"The Clippers aren't expected to exercise the team option on point guard Shaun Livingston and are believed to have strong interest in Udrih."
Yes, Livingston has some serious injury history...but they've been freak injuries. When right, the guy is a true pass-first point guard who plays lock-down defense. And he's only 21 years old. Personally, I'd much rather take a flier on Livingston than re-up Udrih. Beno is a decent point guard but he'll never be a top 10 point. Livingston has that potential. With the Kings at least a few years away from serious contention, why not take that risk?
A backcourt of 6-7 Livingston and 6-7 Martin...both long and athletic, would be a handful. And a point guard who can actually deliver the ball where it needs to be...when it needs to be there would make a huge difference for guys like Martin, Hawes, and Cisco.
