The Golden State Warriors have hired Shaun Livingston as Director, Players Affairs and Engagement.

Livingston was waived by the Warriors last offseason as they executed a complicated sign-and-trade for D'Angelo Russell and he subsequently retired.

Livingston becomes the highest-ranking Black person in the front office of the Warriors since Mitch Richmond in 2008.

Golden State's brain trust on the basketball side of the front office is Bob Myers, Kirk Lacob, Larry Harris and Mike Dunleavy Jr. The next tier consists of Kent Lacob, Jonnie West, Nick U'Ren and Pabail Sidhu.
